Description

Summary
French notarized copy collating two earlier documents: a) the CM foundation act (17 April 1625) and b) its approval by the archbishop of Paris (24 April 1626). The collation was sent to PF with the aim of having the CM approved as a Mission in 1627.
Additional comments

Publisher

The original French versions of the two documents compiled here (i.e., foundation act of 1625 and approval by the archbishop in 1626) are available in P. Coste, Saint Vincent de Paul: correspondance, entretiens, documents (1920-25) vol. 13, doc. 59-60. The 1627 notarized version sent to PF (as well as its Latin translation) are mentioned by A. Coppo in 'Documenti inediti per la storia della Congregazione della Missione, presso l'archivio della S. C. 'De Propaganda Fide'', in Annali della Missione 80:1 (1973), 222-255, here 247, and by Bernard Jacqueline, 'Missions en France,' in Sacrae Congregationis De Propaganda Fide Rerum, ed. by Josef Metzler, Vol. I/2 (1622-1700) (Herder, 1972), 111-148, here 131. Jacqueline erroneously dates it 5 Nov. 1627, after the date of the PF general congregation when the material was discussed (as noted on f. 120v). The PF notes on 120v were published and analyzed by Angelo Coppo in 'Documenti inediti per la storia della Congregazione della Missione, presso l'archivio della S. C. 'De Propaganda Fide,' in Annali della Missione 80:1 (1973), 222-255, here 253-255. The unpublished portion of the notarized document and the few missing lines from the PF note published by Coppo are in the attached file.
