Description

Minutes of PF general meeting of 7 October 1686 discussing among other issues, a petition on behalf of Michel Monmasson, vicar apostolic in Algiers. Monmasson asks several things: a) whether as vicar apostolic he now has more authority than that of a simple 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) lastly, he asks for some blessed medals that he can distribute among the slaves. The cardinals decide that PF secretary should ask the pope to grant Monmasson a papal brief (which, as the secretary observes, he had not yet received).
