Description

Letter from the nuncio to France, Carlo Roberti de' Vittori, to PF. He writes that two Franciscan priests from Ireland have come to him: Marco Macdaniel and Francesco Macdaniel [Mark and Francis MacDonnell?]. They are both willing to go to the Hebrides after they heard from the rector of the Scottish College that there is a great need for priests there. They asked the nuncio to procure missionary patents for them. For more information about their qualities, PF can contact the "Colleggio di S. Isodoro" where they both have studied. This letter was discussed together with another letter from the nuncio written on the same day (APF SOCG 308, 302r (database item 348)), on 10 January 1667. During PF meeting on 8 February 1667 the cardinals decided that the nuncio should find out whether they are apt, and should give them the usual faculties which they can exercise under the authority of the Scottish prefect Alexander Winster; they should receive the usual provision and viaticum. The letter dated 19 November 1666.
Date discussed, 1667-01-10 and 1667-02-08
