By Concordat of Bologna between France and the Papacy, Francis I secures the right to appoint to French bishoprics and abbacies and restores annates to the Pope; he also declares that the Pope is not subject to a general council. It was approved by the Pope on 18 August, but it was over two years before the French Parlement ratified it, as they feared it threatened the liberty of the French church.
