Description

Petition on behalf of René Alméras to PF, mentioning the six missionaries who had been recently accepted by PF for the island of Madagascar. The petition mentions that the ships have not yet set sail. Taking advantage of the delay, Alméras would like to add two more names to the list: Michel Monmasson and Claude Bernard Vegrat, both priests of CM; PF is requested to declare them apostolic missionaries to Madagascar, for the spiritual aid of the local population. The matter was assigned to Cardinal Brancacci (first name written and then scratched was Pallotto) and discussed in PF general congregation of 7 October 1664. PF note (by Pro-secretary Manfronus) shows that the request was approved and forwarded to the Holy Office for the faculties, which should be sent [to the nuncio to France].
Date discussed 1664-10-07
Additional comments
The previous petition (database item 281), discussed by PF in September, actually listed seven names, one of which had been included in earlier petitions as well, which means that six of the names on the September petition were new and needed approval.
