Animadversio in causa Beatificationis Ven S. D. Joannis Palafox.[with] Animadversio in Causa Oxomen
1788 - "The Beatification of Juan Palafox y Mendoza: 2 Eighteenth-Century Manuscripts". Two manuscripts (20 x 28cm) 39ll. + 3bll. and 52ll. en Latin, Spanish and Italian in a bordeaux cloth box. The manuscripts belong to the lawsuit brought by the "devil's advocate" against Palafox. They consist of a detailed reading of Palafox's writings in search of possible offences against orthodoxy. The texts by Palafox in Spanish or Latin are accompanied by the comments of the devil's advocate in Latin. There are some notes in Italian. The case for the beatification of Palafox y Mendoza (b. Fitero, Navarra 24 June 1600, d. Osma 1 October 1659) was initiated in 1726 under Benedicto XIII and continued under the papacies of Benedict XIV, Clemente XIII, Clemente XIV and Pío VI. It became a political question since it was opposed by the Jesuits whose exemptions and privileges Palafox, as Bishop of Puebla and Viceroy of New Spain, had denounced. A vote by the Congregation then responsible for the cause was taken on 28 February 1777 and twenty-six out of forty one prelates favoured the continuation of Palafox's cause of beatification but the final decision was suspended by Pope Pius VI. As this manuscript record of the examination of Palafox's orthodoxy demonstrates the matter was far from being settled. In fact it was not resumed until 2003 under Pope John Paul II. On 17 January 2009 Pope Benedict XVI approved the decree of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints recognizing Palafox's heroic virtue, thus granting him the title of Venerable. On 27 March 2010 Pope Benedict XVI promulgated the decree recognizing the miracle which had been approved unanimously by the Congregation of Cardinals and Bishops. Juan Palafox y Mendoza was finally beatified on 5 June 2011, the whole process having taken from the late seventeenth to the early twenty-first century. [G. 4989] RF 955. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
