Description

Petition on behalf of Philippe Le Vacher, vicar apostolic in Algiers, to PF. He asks for a safe-conduct for the former Discalced Augustine Cherubino Della Vergine Maria, a renegade who wants to return to the Catholic faith. For this he needs to travel to a Christian country, as it would be too dangerous for him to convert to Catholism before leaving Algiers, as he is known there to be a Muslim. He therefore asks that this un-usual condition not to be mentioned in his safe-conduct; he also asks for there not to be a time limit. The cardinals of PF discussed this issue during their general meeting of 5 October 1655, and decided to pass the issue on to the Holy Office.
