Subject

Madagascar
Capuchins

Description

Minutes of the general meeting of PF, held on 12 July 1661, during which a petition by Marshal de La Meilleraye was discussed. He had previously asked for a bishop for Madagascar, but PF responded that the circumstances there did not allow for it. Instead PF proposed to send a titular bishop with faculties of vicar apostolic. For this function Marshal now proposes three Capuchin candidates. The secretary however mentions that the mission has always been in the hands of CM, and that it would discourage them if a Capuchin would be appointed. The cardinals decide that another candidate should be chosen.
