English-language translations of
Laudabiliter (Praiseworthy)
by Adrian IV

"Papal Bull issued in 1155 by Pope Adrian IV who was the only English man to serve in that office. The existence of the bull has been disputed by scholars over the centuries; no copy is extant but scholars refer to the many references to it as early as the 13th century to support the validity of its existence. The bull purports to grant the right to the Angevin King Henry II of England to invade and govern Ireland and to enforce the Gregorian Reforms on the semi-autonomous Christian Church in Ireland." Excerpted from Laudabiliter on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
