a| Document of Pope Gregory XV (f. 2r-41v), giving instructions to Carlo Carafa, bishop of Aversa, for his service as a papal ambassador to the court of the Holy Roman Emperor. This appears to be an archival copy rather than an original; was originally part of a larger volume. Preceded by a note regarding the bull of Pope Boniface VIII granting indulgences in Germany (p. 51), on slightly different paper.
a| Title from caption title (p. 53).
a| Pagination: Paper, i (modern paper) + 41 + i (modern paper); 51-132, contemporary pagination in ink, upper outer corner. This manuscript was originally part of a larger volume.
a| Layout: Written in 18 long lines.
a| Script: Written in a cursive script by a single hand, with document concerning Boniface VIII written in a second, possibly later hand.
a| Binding: Boards, probably 18th or 19th century. Paper badly damaged due to oxidation of ink; text rendered difficult to read in many places. Edges of many leaves frayed. Various stains.
