Description

Minutes of PF general meeting of 11 July 1658 (in the presence of the pope), discussing among other issues, several complaints from two  secular slave priests, and one Minor Observant in Tunis [Gregorio Bianchelli, Jacobo Vilar and Leonardo da Milano]. They accuse their vicar apostolic [Jean Le Vacher], of forcing them to join him for mass on several Sundays, of being involved in commerce, and of being a strict and stubborn man who threatens them with  ecclesiastical suspension. The superior of CM in Rome [Thomas Bérthe] states that the vicar [Le Vacher] is a very zealous servant of God who is anything but avaricious, and that he only insists on these priests being present at mass for the consolation of the slaves. The superior moreover says that it is important to support his authority, because otherwise the disorders that prevailed before his arrival will return. PF secretary merely notes that the letter "has been read" ("lectum").
