LanguageItalian and Spanish
Four separate items bound together on jurisdictional disputes between Rome and the crowns of Naples and Spain defending royal/state prerogatives against the Inquisition. The first by Antonio Castaldo is a contemporary account of a 1547 revolt in Naples against the viceroy Pietro di Toledo upon his attempt to introduce the Inquisition. The revolt and its aftermath to ca. 1551 are discussed (in Italian). The second item is King of Spain Ferdinand VI's decree of 1751 against the Masons (in Spanish). On the following leaf (f. 36) is an abbreviated Italian translation of Ferdinand VI's decree on the previous page (not a different undated edict as described in Zacour-Hirsch). The third item is a partial copy of Niccoló Capasso's Ragionamenti intorno al tribunale della inquisizione (in Italian) [see UPenn Ms. Codex 588, 589, and 590]. The fourth item is a report on controversies over article 23 of the concordat between the Holy See and the royal court in Madrid concerning jurisdiction in the sale of ecclesiastical property, 1738-1739, by Pedro de Hontalba (in Spanish).
