Description

Minutes of PF general meeting of 26 June 1674 discussing among other issues, a letter from Carlo d'Ancona. Jean Le Vacher, vicar apostolic in Algiers, has sent him to be provicar in Tunis. D'Ancona reports on the state of the mission, and mentions that he found five priests (four slaves and one free). The latter Marcello Costa is a good priest, but the rest are mediocre, and cannot be trusted to have interests other than their liberty. D'Ancona thinks that the care of a bagnos should not be given to slave priests in the future. He also asks how to deal with a certain slave priest who wants to work in multiple bagnos, even though he has to celebrate mass with chains around his feet. Since D'Ancona has heard few good things about this priest, he asks whether he should let him continue his service or withdraw it altogether. The cardinals agree with the second proposition. Lastly, D'Ancona asks that PF confirm the patents that Le Vacher had given him, but the cardinals decide that there is no need to do so.
