Visitations
 

On October 10, 1260, Bishop Niccolo di Tifernate gave the community absolution for having resisted his earlier visitation, and exempted them from his jurisdiction -- a privilge for which they paid him one pound of wax annually (the community would revert to his jurisdiction if they defaulted two years in a row). Bishop Niccolo visited the monastery again in 1267, and refused to recognize Cecilia as prioress, excommunicating her. A year later, the excommunication was lifted with the admonishment to Cecilia that she subject herself to the Bishop.
