See the two first original Lives of Urban V.,
(in Muratori, Script. Rerum Italicarum, tom. iii. P. ii. p.
623, 635,) and the Ecclesiastical Annals of Spondanus, (tom.
i. p. 573, A.D. 1369, No. 7,) and Raynaldus, (Fleury, Hist.
Eccles. tom. xx. p. 223, 224.) Yet, from some variations, I
suspect the papal writers of slightly magnifying the
genuflections of Palaeologus.]
