Description

Petition on behalf of Michel Monmasson, vicar apostolic in Algiers, to PF. He asks several things: a) whether as vicar apostolic he has more authority than he used to have as a missionary, so that he can do something against the abuses of some laics and priests; b) whether he has authority over the Greek priests; c) whether he can allow some laics to handle the sacred vessels; and d) he asks for some blessed medals that he can distribute among the slaves. During their meeting of 7 October 1686, the cardinals decide that the secretary should ask the pope to grant Monmasson a papal brief (which, as the secretary observes, he had not yet received).
