Summary:
Letter of excommunication for theft, with blanks for the objects stolen, the identity of their owner, and the date of the document. (According to the bookseller's description, the ground for excommunication is "un grave asunto de robos de documentos de gran importancia, escrituras y dinero a unos italiano llegados a esta corte.")
Notes:
Title from caption at foot of sheet. A largely illegible subtitle is supplied in ms.: por tres pliegos [...]n [...]tare & [...]o R[...] [...]talin[?].
Imprint date conjectured by cataloger. Bookseller's description gives ca. 1630; Fernando, Infante of Spain, was administrator of the archdiocese of Toledo from 1620-1640. Juan del Cerro is identified as the vicar general of Madrid in a few books he approved in the summer of 1620; he is apparently preceded in that role by Andres de Aresti in 1619 and early 1620 and succeeded by Diego Vela in 1621 (by 1630 the office is evidently held by Juan de Velasco y Azevedo). This text is dated in largely illegible ms. at end: Dada en M[adrid?] a [...] dias de mes de Julio de mil y sei[...] años.

Text signed in ms. at end: El Do[ctor] D[on] Ju[an] del Cerro. Por su m[andado] Eugenio Lopez n[otari]o pub[lico].
