Subject

Scotland

Description

Letter from Georgius Haius [George Hay] to PF stating that he went to the Scottish Benedictine monastery in Ratisbon [Regensburg]. He is now asking for a dispensation of the vow that he took when he studied in the Scottish college in Rome, in order to go to the Scottish mission. The procurator adds that Hay received permission from the rector to go there, but not from PF. He asks PF to give Hay the dispensation or give other clear orders. During their meeting of 8 June 1666 the cardinals (in the presence of the pope) decided not to give the dispensation, and to ask the abbot of the Benedictine monastery not to allow him membership to the Benedictine order.
