Rome, 1451 [07 12]
Pope Nicholas V grants the general remission of sins to all the faithful of the Kingdom of Poland and of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, who in three days visit one of the four cathedrals Gniezno, Lvov, Krakow or Vilnius and give a quarter of the money required for the jubilee trip to Rome; and establishes how the collected money should be allocated.
There is a clerical record on the plica on the right: de cu[ria] A. de Racaneto.  The record under the plica on the right runs as follows: Pe de Noxeto.
