Subject

Babylon

Description

Letters from the bishop of Babylon requesting dispensation of residence (in Persia), and from two doctors in Paris certifying that the bishop's health is not good, and that he cannot leave and reside in Persia because the trip is arduous, and the climate there is too hot, which might result in apoplexy. PF note indicates that PF cardinals agreed, as long as the bishop was ready to either renounce the bishopric or be replaced by a coadjutor or a suffragan.
Date discussed 1645-08-07
