Notes

  • -  In some of the synods which had been held in the Indies, some decrees had been issued which were harmful to the royal jurisdiction and others which had produced bad results. Because the land was new and the faith newly planted, great care should be taken that scandal and other harmful results not arise. The King therefore charges the bishops that before they publish or print synodal acts they should send them to the Council of the Indies for approval and, if they have already held synods, they should send the results to Spain on the first ships.
