Other Ecclesiastical Relations

In 1231, Abbess Imilia was elected in the presence of Bishop Tifernate Matteo, who was embroiled in a dispute with Abbot Ugoccione of Campo Reggio (dioc. Gubbio) over the jurisdiction over S. Maria. In 1237, it was decided that the abbess of S. Maria would be elected in the presence of the abbot and that the bishop would have the right of confirmation, visitation and correction. Later, S. Maria was to be united with the monastery of Cortona, once again transferring jurisdiction.
