Description

Latin translation of a notarized compilation of two earlier documents in French, namely the CM foundation act (17 April 1625) and its approval by the archbishop of Paris (24 April 1626). The French notarized version (dated 12 August 1627) was sent to PF with the aim of having CM approved; the Latin translation was done at the request of PF, probably by a PF translator (see the PF note to the nuncio's letter in support of CM from 26 September 1627, on f. 122v (database item 22).
