Babylon

Description

Letter from the nuncio to France, Nicolò Guidi di Bagno, regarding the situation in Persia and the bishopric of Babylon. Christophe Authier has been suggested (it is not clear by whom) as possible bishop of Aspaham and coadjutor of Babylon, seeing as the current bishop of Babylon is planning on renouncing the see. Authier is not in Paris at the moment but the bishop of Babylon (Fra Bernardo) told the nuncio that he doubted Authier would accept the post, because: a) he did not seem inclined to live in that part of the world; and b) he would not be able to stay there on such a small allowance (i.e., 100 scudi/year from the bishop himself, and 100 scudi from PF). The nuncio is trying to secure a bishopric in Provence for Fra Bernardo (Jean Duval); if the queen agrees, then the bishop would be able to leave the entire income of the Babylon see in the hands of whoever will go to replace him, [thus making the post more appealing]. The nuncio will keep Cardinal Capponi updated on the matter and will let him know what Authier said, after he finally sees him.
