Title

Letter from PF to CM, Rome, 1662-11-27

Subject

Madagascar

Description

Letter from PF to CM. PF is delighted to announce that the missionaries proposed by CM Superior General [René Alméras] have been accepted. With this letter, they send the necessary faculties and patents, and praise the piety of the missionaries who are about to undertake such a dangerous mission. They also grant the missionaries the faculty to administer confessions, on the ship that will bring them to the mission. They do not grant the dispensation to eat meat, nor the faculty to do anything in the countries outside their mission. However, if they (whilst travelling to Madagascar), pass any countries were they can be of use, they are allowed to help the people. The other issues are refered to the Holy Office.
