Title

Petition from Blaise Féron to Urban VIII [1627]

Subject

CM petitions
France (missions in)

Description

Summary
Petition of Blaise Le Féron on behalf of the CM, requesting its confirmation by PF as a mission. Approved by PF in November 1627.
Additional comments
As noted by Coppo, an additional "memoriale" was probably attached to this petition, which detailed the faculties requested for the missionaries ("infrascritte"); the "joined memo" is also noted on 374v. I was not able to find that document. Coppo argues that it is very unlikely that the said "memoriale" was the 1625 founding contract of the CM or the act of approval of that contract by the archbishop of Paris. See A. Coppo, '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 233.
