Barbary (unspecified or several locations)
Capuchins
Slaves (Christian)
Ransom

Description

Minutes of PF general meeting of 29 March 1678 discussing among other issues, a petition on behalf of the Venetian slaves in Algiers, Tunis and Tripoli. They ask that PF allow two Capuchins per city for the purpose of handling ransom money, because they have nobody from their own region on whom they can rely on. They currently have to do business with Jews, but this only makes the problems more difficult, instead of helping the slaves. The cardinals agree to the solution of sending two Capuchins per city.
