Additional Details

An account of the missionary labors and martyrdom of Cardinal Charles-Thomas Maillard De Tournon, who died in a Macau prison in 1710 after a controversy over the use of traditional Chinese rites in Christian practice. Followed by 7 related papal decrees and other documents, 1702-1711. The account is apparently unpublished, although another uncredited copy was offered by Vindel in his 1903 catalogue, item 2415, that copy being 133, [28] leaves and bearing a slightly different title.
