Subject

Tunis
Capuchins
Petitions for faculties
Slaves (Christian)

Description

Two petitions on behalf of the Capuchin Girolamo Da Sassari, prefect of the mission in Tunis. One is written to the pope, in which he explains why he left his mission in Tunis (the consul Jean Ambrozin threatened him, after Da Sassari demanded the money that he was obliged to pay to the church of Tunis). In the petition to PF, Da Sassari asks for the faculties of vicar apostolic or vicar general of Carthage, so that the other missionaries (both free and enslaved), will have to obey him. PF notes state that it is not common to give such faculties to Capuchins, and that it is not wise that he return to the mission because either he left because of the consul's anger (which will not have diminished), or because of an 'instable' character, which would have not changed either. The rescript that followed PF discussion of 26 March 1669 reads "nihil." 
Date discussed 1669-03-26
Additional comments
Girolamo Da Sassari was probably in Rome around this time. He left Tunis in September 1668, and travelled to Rome (where he still was in February 1669). See: APF SOCG 424, 245r-246v (database item 750).
