Letter 3.45 to Bishop John of Gallipoli (June 593)
Gregory to John, bishop of Gallipoli
Gregory asks John to inspect the misdeeds of Bishop Andrew of Tarentum and suspend him from communion.
Furthermore, in a petition presented to us (appended to this letter), the clergy of the aforesaid bishop allege that they have endured many evils at his hand. For this reason, your Fraternity should take care to find out about everything accurately, and so remedy and settle things in a reasonable manner that they are not forced to return here over this matter in future.
