Seravezza case

Description

Antonio Di Seravezza who calls himself vicar general, issues a decree for all the Christians and "majordomos" of S. Antonio, against D. Gio' [Giovanni] Luca. Luca has not been able to show his missionary license and he has been condemend by his bishop, who forbade him to say mass. Therefore Antonio Di Seravezza could not give him the required license. After Di Seravezza's departure from Tunis, Luca still said mass; with this decree however, he is suspended from all priestly duties. The decree has to be made public in all the bagnos so that no one can claim to be ignorant. A copy will also be sent to Rome [probably this one].
Date discussed: 1671-08-06
Additional comments
According to the corresponding ACTA, APF ACTA 41 305r, 330r-338r, Antonio Di Seravezza does not have the right to call himself vicar general nor issue a decree. D. Gio' Luca is possibly Gioseppe Merino della Pantellaria, however it also be one Giovanni Luca Bianco. Another possibility is that these two are the same person.
