Notes

  • -  The King informs the archbishop that Pope Gregory XIII had proclaimed a Jubilee, calling on all Christians to do penance and good works, so that God in His mercy would prevent the spread of and put an end to the pestilence which had struck many cities of Italy, especially Milan and Venice, but from which Rome and many other parts of Italy had been spared. The King orders the archbishop to have the Jubilee proclaimed in his archdiocese and in the suffragan dioceses of his province. This was to be done at a time when there would be no obstacles, after the preaching of the bull of the Cruzada which was being sent for its third publication. A report was to be sent to the Crown regarding what had been done.
