Summary: Theophilus, vicedominus (of the city of Adana in Cilicia), declines the bishopric in favor of another, by whom he is later deposed from his own office. In his resentment he makes a compact duly signed with the Devil and recovers his office. He repents and the Virgin obtains his compact and returns it to him. (276)
