Bullarum Diversorum Annorum Innocentii VIII Liber LXXIII. (fn. 2)

8 Innocent VIII.

7 Kal. April.
(26 March.)
[St. Peter's] Rome.
(f. 27r.)
To Michael Bonneti, canon of Nantes, a solicitator of apostolic letters, and a member of the pope's household. Indult for him (who holds inter alia a canonry and prebend of Nantes, and is beloved (dilectus) of Robert, archbishop of Glasgow, who was sent to the pope as orator of James, king of Scots), to choose any fit priest, secular or regular, as his confessor, who may, after hearing his confession, grant him absolution in cases reserved to the pope (with certain specified exceptions), once only, and in other cases as often as opportune, enjoining a salutary penance, and may commute his vows, except those of pilgrimage beyond the sea, the shrines of the Apostles, St. James in Compostella, chastity and religion, etc.; indult to have a portable altar, etc. Sincere devotionis affectus. (Gratis pro solicitatore.) [3 pp. In the margin at the end: ‘Jul(ii).’]


  • 1.
  • 2. Reg. Vat. DCCLXXII, the first of the Registers of Alexander VI (which are bound in blue, except the last seven of them, whereas those of Innocent VIII are bound in red), is described on the back as ‘Alex. vi. Bullar. Ann. i. Tom. i.’ It naturally consists almost entirely of bulls of Alexander VI, but contains a few of Innocent VIII, viz. two on ff. 241v.–244v. (afterwards registered, as notes in the margin certify, ‘in libro 69. Innocentii,’ i.e. Reg. Vat. DCCLXVI), one on ff. 247r.–248r., and one on ff. 261r.–263v. None of them concerns the Calendar.
