Description

Petition on behalf of the Trinitarians in Algiers. They ask: a) that they may keep the Holy sacrament in their hospitals; and b) that they may be exempted from obeying the vicar apostolic (Jean Le Vacher), as he wants them to receive non-Catholics in their hospitals, whereas the Trinitarians think that would be harmful for the Catholics. In PF summary another issue is added, namely that new complaints have been arrived from Algiers about Trinitarian Bartolomeo Da Serrano, despite PF ordering the superior of the Trinitarians to recall him. During their meeting of 16 June 1673 the cardinals decided the following: 1) regarding the first issue, they will ask the vicar apostolic for more information; 2) with regard to the second issue, the vicar apostolic should be asked to refrain from compelling the Trinitarians to except heretics in their hospitals. Lastly, the cardinals decided to ask the superior of the Trinitarians to again recall Da Serrano from the mission.
