A collection of 25 letters, with seals. The letters predominantly deal with various church issues, and are mostly from church and papal officials either in Rome, Poland, or Prague. Some of the letters refer to heresy, others mention Jesuits, one mentions the election of Pope Gregory XIV (f. 43r), and one mentions flooding of the Tiber and Arno rivers in Rome in 1589 (f. 25r). Another letter speaks of the Viennese anti-Lutheran Georg Eder (f. 1r-2v), while a later one refers to the abbey official Georg Kirchmair (f. 37r-38v) of Brixen. Some of the frequent recipients include the viscount of Milan and apostolic nuncio Alphonsus (or Alfonso), Giovanni Battista Zuccati, Gerardus Vossius, Paolo Beni, and the patriarch of Alexandria and apostolic nuncio Camillo Gaetano. Some of the senders include Sebastianus Batensis, Alessandro Centurione of Genoa, and bishop Andreas Jerin of Wrocław. The letters are numbered 1-25 in pencil, upper right recto. Each letter contains a wax seal, and some have notarial signets.
