LA ROCHELLE. - Constitutions of the Religious Hospitallers of the Charity of Notre-Dame, of the Order of Saint Augustine. Established in Paris by the authority of Monseigneur l'Illustrissime et Révérendissime Messire Jean-François de Gondy, archbishop of Paris. S.l.n.d. [c. 1636]. Manuscript in-4, ca. 145 pages, contemporary soft vellum.
Seventeenth-century manuscript in legible handwriting.
A community of hospitable nuns was founded in La Rochelle in the 1630s. The manuscript contains the Constitutions of the Hospitallers of the Charity of Notre Dame, given by the Archbishop of Paris in 1634, confirmed by Pope Urban VIII, and the act by which the Bishop of Saintes, becoming the local authority of the community at La Rochelle, confirmed their constitutions and mandated "our dearest and most beloved daughters in Jesus, the Religious Hospitallers of the Charity of Notre-Dame, Order of Saint Augustine, established under our authority in the city of La Rochelle to keep and observe them punctually [...]. Done in our episcopal palace in Xainctes on December 10, 1636".
The Constitutions were printed for the first time in 1635.
