Lots 45-48 from a private collection, United States.

By this document Jacobus de Mucciarellis of Bologna, Doctor of Law, canon, papal chaplain, and auditor, publishes the letter ‘Et si pro ministerio pastoralis …’, printed in H. Lausser, Die Quellen zur Geschichte der Schwestern im Maierhof bis zum Jahre 1550, 2004, p.236. It grants to all members of the Orders of St Francis and and St Clare, that by visiting the altar of the church in which they dwelt, they may, after making their confession, gain the same indulgences as have been granted to those who visit certain churches of Rome, and that the confessor of their choice could absolve them from all their sins, and other privileges.
