Conversion
Ransom
Tunis

Description

Defense of Luigi Da Palermo, and the reasons why he had to travel to Palermo: a) to protect and control the ransoming of slaves in his native Palermo, as one can obtain in a letter sent to PF. He also had to bring the safe conducts from the customs to Palermo; b) to bring Filippo Brescia, a doctor who spontaneously went to Tunis to convert, safely back into Christendom. He also brought back with him to Palermo two Spanish slaves (ransomed fro 400 piastre), and he asks the viceroy for 250 piastre that he had previously lent the chruch of Tunis; and c) he felt obliged to go to Rome himself, because he never received an answer from the letters that he wrote for an entire year to Gio' le Vascier [Jean Le Vacher] and PF. The letters were about the children and women that were about to lose their faith.
