Babylon

Description

Letter from the nuncio to France, Nicolò Guidi di Bagno, to Secretary Ingoli on various matters, mentioning Vincent de Paul twice. Firstly in relation to an internal dispute of the Capuchins (which had been going on for years), namely a conflict between Father Archangelo (missionary) and the Paris provincial, which the Royal Council of Conscience has decided to resolve (temporarily) by deferring everything to the provincial, a decision greatly favored by the Prince of Condé. According to Vincent de Paul, it would be hard to change that decision, because everybody was in its favor. Secondly, regarding the bishopric of Babylon, the nuncio is constantly trying to get a definite answer from Mr. (Hippolyte) Féret, who had also been nominated by the bishop of Paris, as priest of the parish of Saint Nicolas of Sciatra. The nuncio does not know if he is going to accept or not. If he says no, then perhaps another suitable person among Vincent de Paul's missionaries can be found.
