Description

Copy of a letter from PF to the nuncio to France, Celio Piccolomini, in which PF asks the nuncio for his judgment on the following issue. The "Preti della dottrina Xp'na" [the priests of the Christian doctrine] have asked to be allowed faculties, in order to successfully exercise their ministry in dioceses where heresy is prevailing. Since granting these faculties could be a cause of both confusion and trouble (between these priests and the members of the CM), the nuncio should therefore decide whether it is a good idea to give them the faculties, and if so on which conditions. It is noted that the nuncio has previously granted similar faculties to the priests of Valognes, which led to a group gathering around the abbot of Luthumier). The letter dated 21 March 1658.
