Notes

  • -  The Council of the Indies had received letters and papers which reported that comedies and other dramatic presentations had been enacted in friaries in the Indies, contrary to the reverence due these places, resulting in scandal and setting a bad example. The Council of the Indies had considered the matter quite serious because of the need to set good examples, especially for those recently converted. The present royal order was therefore issued, charging the archbishops and bishops as far as it was in their power, to see that no such dramatic performances were enacted in the houses of male or female religious. Similar orders were being sent to the Viceroys, presidents of audiencias, and governors and to the provincials of the religious orders.
