Notes

  • -  Alvaro Temiño, schoolmaster of the cathedral of Mexico, in the name of the cathedral chapter had complained about the permission given to Zumárraga to make appointments of up to four benefices in the cathedral chapter when vacancies occurred through death or absence. According to the letter founding the chapter, the present beneficiaries were to gain the income of those who were absent. The cardinal and the Council of the Indies here give their decision that the bishop can make appointments only to benefices vacant through death or through an eight months' absence of the beneficiary.
