Notes

  • -  The King reminds the ecclesiastics that the Popes had granted the bull of the Cruzada to be preached in all of his realms so that the income would help with the expenses which he incurred in the public and common defense of Christianity against the infidels and heretics, enemies of the holy faith. Now the bull was being sent again so that when the fifth biennial term was completed, it could be preached for the sixth time. Rev. Thomas de Salazar, commissary general of the holy Cruzada, had subdelegated to the dignitaries to whom the cedula was addressed the authority to have the preaching of the Cruzada in the archdiocese carried out. The King charges them to accept the subdelegation and to see that everything related to the bull is properly carried out and that the officials of the Cruzada are treated well.
