Description

Petition on behalf of René Alméras asking PF to approve the dispatch of more missionaries to the island of Madagascar, on account of the "copious spiritual harvest" to be had there. He mentions that those already approved by PF had not left yet, due to (the merchants) trying to assemble several ships to send over together. The names of those intended to join the mission are: Pietro Turpino [Pierre Turpin], Massimiliano Francesco Cuuron [Maximilien François Cuvron or Cuveron], Pietro Joüery [Pierre Jouery], and Giouanni Gueroult [Jean Guéroult], who are all priests of CM. PF is also requested to grant them the status of apostolic missionaries, including the customary faculties that will be conferred to them by the prefect of the mission, as already declared by PF; the petition mentions that the additions will not cause any "temporal burden" to PF. The notes on 37v show that: a) Cardinal Brancacci was assigned to the matter; and b) that the request was approved by PF on 5 June 1663.
