Petition on behalf of CM Superior Vincent de Paul to PF [1657]

Subject

Tunis
Algiers
Petitions for faculties
Slaves (Christian)

Description

Petition [from CM] to PF. It recalls the fact that CM has been sending missionaries to Algiers and Tunis to help spiritually and materially the thousands of slaves in those cities, which they have been doing with great success. Since free priests are not allowed, Vincent de Paul had asked the consuls of both cities to take the apostolic vicars into their houses. But now that both consuls have gone back to France after being treated badly by the Turks, Vincent de Paul asks that both apostolic vicars, Jean Le Vacher and Philippe Le Vacher, take the office of consul in order to be able to stay there; the office does not involve tasks which are unsuitable for priest's. If PF agrees to this solution, a renewal of the faculties of apostolic vicar for both priests is needed.
