The twelfth canon of the Second Council at Nicaea [says]: “If any bishop or superior should be found alienating anything from the properties of the diocese or of the monastery into a civil official’s hand or surrendering them to another person, the surrendering is to be invalid according to the canon of the Holy Apostles, which says, ‘Let the bishop have care of all the ecclesiastical things and let him manage them as if God were observing; and he is not permitted to appropriate any of them or grant as gifts the things of God to his own relatives. If, however, they should be paupers, let him provide for them as paupers but let him not, on their pretext, sell off the things of the monastery'.
