La Gazette 1633: Historical News Today

Esteemed Readers, The Thirty Years’ War (1618-1648) doesn’t mean only battles & death. There is some pretty space for life & slow motion changes as well:

Vienna, 31st August, 1633: “Here everybody speaks about the peace in Germany, nevertheless a great work has been done by the Imperial Deputies who gathered in Goltzen (Silesia) to gain it on the 28th of the given month…”

St. Denis, 5th August, 1633: “On the second of the current month the Cardinal de Rochefoucault attended Bishops de Senlis & d’Auxerre, sieurs Lefeau & de Vertamor, Masters of Appeals, Jacques le Mercier & Claude the Priest of the Order de St. Benoist. After his visit in our town,- the burial site of our Kings, – that took place on the 15th of the previous month, 35 Religious men of the given Order belonging to the Congregation of St. Maur were given into possession some Relics, Treasures & Religious objects from this famous Abbey to keep them in accordance with a new reform of the Papal Briefs & Patent Letters of His Majesty that present this Order (St. Benoist’s) as an example for others to ponder upon when the time for their own reformation comes…”

Amsterdam, 15th August, 1633: “Ships of Spiritual Counsellors sailed to ports Flessingue & Vere: they are seven Dunkerque pataches (a special ship), two others were shot with a canon & sunk. The priests are searching for another Warlord to be sent to the West Indies instead of the Coronel Errenteiter who did not wish to depend on them as much as they desired…”

Vive le Roy! 🙂

  1. I was surprised to read that Coronel Errenteiter did not wish to depend on the priests as much as they wanted. Seems something warrants further investigation there. After all, the West Indies is a valuable territory.
