Description

Because the republic of Venice has been very compassionate about her subjects that have been kept as slaves in Barbaria, she has decided to ransom some of them; this is why Venice wants to send Capuchins from her lands to these regions. For this reason Venice asks PF to grant Capuchins from Venice the right to settle in Algiers, Tunis and Tripoli as missionaries, not only to ransom the slaves, but also to help them in their religious needs. They ask PF to send the Capuchins to Barbaria, and to give them the same priviliges, faculties, and provision as other missionaries. PF decides not to grant the Venetian Capuchins the licenses, and instructs those who really want the faculties to contact the prefect of the mission.
