Description

Minutes of PF general meeting of 7 February 1678 discussing among other issues, a letter from Francesco Gatta, a missionary in Barbary. He writes about a Spanish boy who has endured many sufferings at the hands of his brothers and Father, who took him to Tunis with the express intention of converting to Judaism. They themselves had already converted, however he refused, despite the many beatings he suffered over the course of the year. The cardinals decide that the boy should receive protection, and that a certain "Julio de Angelino," from Livorno should be contacted, in order to find out whether the boy arrived in Livorno, or if there is any news about him.
