Summary of negotiations between the new Bourbon government of Philip V of Spain and the Roman Curia, which took place in Paris in 1712. Philip V had expelled the papal nuncio from Spain in 1709 when the Pope decided to support Archduke Charles in the War of Spanish Succession. As it became clear that Philip V would be victorious, the negotiations with the papal nuncio in Paris were initiated to restore diplomatic relations between Spain and Rome. Dated 19 December 1713 when given to the Royal Council of Castile, Macanaz's summary also recommends the limitation of the Roman Curia's influence in Spain. Macanaz advises that in matters of faith the church doctrine should be "blindly followed" but in matters of government every sovereign must follow the municipal laws of the realm first and foremost. He argues that the Roman Curia has exceeded its authority in the administration of benefices and that these should be handled locally. He also recommends that the papal nuncio in Spain, who in 1537 had been granted legal jurisdiction by Charles I, be stripped of all legal jurisdiction and revert to the pre-1537 status of diplomatic representative only. He makes similar recommendations in other areas concerning ecclesiastical pensions, marriage dispensations, and the management of all levels of clergy.
