"after having summoned a large number of barons of the country, we transported to said Church and have admonished the clerics who was there engaged in a secular life, to get them to resume regular habits and passing in the cloister a life marked by continence and piety, to advocate ever for Christ under the rule of St. Augustine., and to use the goods of the Church to pious and Holy uses. A part of them, inspired by the Holy Spirit, welcoming our words with submission and favour, immediately resumed religious life; If others have not followed this example immediately, they gave at least their consent to what others looked their place in the cloister.

And so the new community was governed with more authority and monitoring, we have called the monastery of the Eter a man of exemplary life, named Aimon, have appointed him Abbot, and on the advice of our prelates of our canons, the support of Viscount Élie, and all the main leaders of the between-Dordogne, we gave him, his successors and all his brothers, canons regular, the Church of Saint-Emilion with all its dependencies both acquired that acquire, between which are the chapel of said Church and the benefits of the Church; the Church of the blessed Marie Magdelaine, within the same territory; Église Saint-Jean de Fozela; the Church Saint-Martin de Mazerat; the Church of Saint - Pey of Armens; ... »
