In September 1276, an Abbot came to see the new Pope, John XXI, claiming that he had a papal bull, stating that his abbey was to be given vast territories.

While reading the bull to the new Pope, the Abbot stated that it had been given to him personally by John XX.

The Pope had the Abbot taken out and removed him from his office.
