ALS in Italian, one page, 8.5 x 12.5, May 5, 1531. Untranslated letter to the Council of Ten in Venice. In very good condition, with intersecting folds, scattered creases and toning, a bit of show-through from docketing to reverse, and a cut to the lower left. Justinianus was governor of the Croatian island Krk, which stood under Venetian control since 1480. He had been ordered to inform monasteries, churches, and communities of the island that their preachers should calm down the people in face of the Turkish army danger and neither preach against the Turks nor introduce any tax. Jusitinianus met the vicar-general and the priests and told them to execute this command ‘ad unguem’ on pain of penalties. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
