Description

Petition on behalf of René Alméras. Alméras writes that there are not enough priests left in Madagasca since Nicolas Etienne, the previous prefect, has been killed, another missionary has left the island and a third has drowned. He therefore asks for the appointment of the following new missionaries: Giacomo [Jacques] Henir, Giouanni [Jean] le Bourgeois, Andrea l’Escuier [André Lescuyer], and Tussano [Toussaint] Piequelin. He also requests the appointment of Maximilien Michel Maniè as prefect and François Cuveron [or Cuvron] as vice prefect of the same mission, and in the event of either of their deaths, Ignace Roguet. PF note of the meeting on 20 September 1666 show that the cardinals agreed to the petition, and that the faculties of prefect should be requested at the Holy Office. Afterwhich, they should be sent to the nuncio in Paris, who will then give them to the priests, once they have been judged capable to operate in the mission.
