Seravezza case

Description

From the letter of Bourdieu, [Ambrozin] has come to understand that [Jean Le Vacher] has not been able to write him a letter because of his sickness. He has been forced to remove Antonio Di Seravezza, who has been left in the position of Vicar [Apostolic] by Girolamo Da Sassari. Because Di Seravezza had a indecent conversation with a priest, he has been sent away from Tunis altogether, to Livorno. Whilst onboard Di Seravezza decided to go to Marseille, in order to plead an unjust cause of which [Ambrozin] declares he is guilty. It is noted that Di Seravezza has left much division behind. He made many Christians believe that Gioseppe della Pantellaria [Giuseppe Merino] has been excommunicated, because he kept saying mass in the house of [Ambrozin]. Others also told Merino that he was excommunicated.
Date discussed: 1671-08-06
Additional comments
The letter is probably written by Jean Ambrozin, the French consul in Tunis, since the writer states that he has thrown Antonio Di Seravezza out of his house, which Ambrozin is described doing in APF SOCG 430, 240r-v, 263r (database item 729).
