The Disorders of the Cordeliers.
SECTION XII. Of the Disorders committed by the Cor∣deliers in the Temporal concerns of the Monastery of St. Catharine.
SECTION XIII. That the Cordeliers are under an impos∣sibility of ever establishing good Order, and Regularity in this Mona∣stery.
SECTION XIV. That they are the Superiours of the Order, who have engaged the House of Saint Catharine in the Disorders it is in.
SECTION XV. That the Religious Sisters of St. Catha∣rine have invincible reasons not to have any Confidence in the Cor∣deliers.
SECTION XVI. The Cordeliers Reasons to colour the Dis∣orders, that they have committed in the Monastery of St. Catharine, and to maintain themselves notwithstanding the Abuses they have made of the Juris∣diction that they usurped, are answer'd.
The Cordeliers Reasons. The Nuns are subject by their Foundation to the General of the Friers Minors, and they cannot, without breaking their Vow and their Rule, return under the Jurisdiction of My Lord Archbishop of Sens.
The Cordeliers Reason. 'Tis only the Capriciousness of some pri∣vate Nuns, and the Revengefulness of two of them, that they would have pu∣nished for the scandalls they have oc∣casioned.
LETTER.
The Cordeliers Reason. They have the greatest and soundest part of the Community on their side.
The Cordeliers Reason. The Zeal with which these Nuns have es∣poused the Interests of the Cordeliers, does sufficiently vindicate them.
LETTER.
The Cordeliers Reason. There are none against the Cordeliers, but a few factious spirits, that were offended at the Reformation which they would have brought in in Execution of his Ma∣jesties Letters of the Privy Seal, and the Command of the late Queen Mother.
The Cordeliers Reason. They made Songs of the Cordeliers, and turn'd the Provincial's Words and Actions into Raillery.
The Cordeliers Reason. My Lord Archbishop of Sens instead of Executing his Commission, endeavour'd usurp the Power over them by infusing Rebellion into them, and by maintaining them in it ever since.
The Cordeliers Reason. He Excommunicated those, that were zea∣lous for the Observation of their Rule, and caus'd Nine of them to be forcibly carried away, so as was never before heard of.
The Cordeliers Reason. Although the Nuns of St. Catharine should of right be under the Authority of my Lord Archbishop of Sens; yet this cannot be done but by the Pope, who withdrew them from under his Jurisdi∣ction.
The Cordeliers Reason. This is to affront the whole Order, to disho∣nour it, and to scandalize the Church.
