Description

Letter from an unknown author (the signature is illegible) to [Luigi Capponi?] in which he mentions the pope's decision to distribute areas of Ireland, among PF cardinals. Therefore, the writer of the letter aks PF to confirm the decision. He moreover asks for the approval of certain candidates for different ecclesiastical posts in Ireland. The orders of the candidates are also taken into account, as there might be too many Franciscans, which upsets the Dominicans and Cistercians. The list of candidates with their orders and the cardinals responsible for each respective candidate follows. At the end of the letter, there is also a list of the amount of dioceses per order.
Date discussed: 1647-01-23
