Description

Summary
The general of the triremes (Philippe-Emmanuel de Gondi) asks Cardinal Spada to obtain a brief from the pope ordering the superior of the Capuchins of Provence to send thirteen priests "to instruct, hear confessions and teach the catechism to the captains, soldiers and sailors of said triremes", in Tollon as well as in other places where the triremes would go. The fathers have been doing their mission on the triremes for one or two years already and they say they cannot continue to do so without a brief. The PF notes on f. 140v indicate that Ingoli was going to discuss the matter with Barberini, and that there was a negative response to the request, given in June 1627.
Date discussed 1627-02-20 and 1627-06-08
Additional comments
a) Cardinal Spada was leaving the French nunciature that year. b) Petition discussed twice by the PF.
