Subject

Tunis
Slaves (Christian)
Petitions for faculties
Capuchins

Description

Minutes of PF general meeting discussing, among other issues, whether to grant Dominicus Raccus missionary faculties for Tunis. The subject was referred by Cardinal Ginetti and was based on a letter from two slaves from Tunis, who requested that the said Raccus be declared a missionary, as the previous missionaries were either old, dead, or had been freed and had gone back to their countries. PF decided - if the pope agreed - to write to Father Alexander of Genoa, prefect of the Capuchin mission in Barbary, in order to ask for his opinion on whether Raccus (or anybody else) should be granted missionary faculties in Tunis. Meeting held at "Collegium Propaganda Fide"; five cardinals were present (Capponius, S. Honuphrii, Cornelius, Ginettus, Pamphylius), as well as the assessor of the Holy See.
Additional comments
