Description

Letter containing a copy of King Louis XIII's approval of CEC and its right to make use of the pope's confirmation brief, which had been sent on 5 June 1634. The document itself is an Italian translation of a letter from the king’s councillor and secretary of state Claude Bouthillier, seemingly addressed to PF; it reports that the king, on 4 July 1634 in St Germain-en-Laye, approved "the establishment of a congregation under the name of the Exaltation of the Saint Cross, instituted for helping the conversion of heretics and for the assistance of the newly converted" (f. 94r; for the Italian version of this excerpt, see the attached transcription).
Additional comments
Written after in July 1635 (after the 4th).
