Subject

Babylon

Description

Letter from the nuncio to France, Nicolò Guidi di Bagno, about the coadjutor position in Babylon. "Father Vincent" (Vincent de Paul) has proposed Mr. Blampignon, a priest from the diocese of Nevers, as a virtuous and pious candidate. Moreover, he has already learned how to read in Persian with the help of a Persian Catholic at court (called David). Blampignon claims to want to establish himself in Persia, and David wants to come along, which would be a good thing, because David is a good Catholic and has translated the catechism and other useful books into the Persian language. The nuncio again requests details about the funding of the trip to Persia and the route to be taken (via Rome, or Marseille?).
