Acta Consistorialia, 1378-1644.

Manuscript record of the proceedings of the College of Cardinals, assembled in consistory. The first volume (Bd. Ms. 464, hand numbered 152 on spine) is a selection compiled from the Acta Consistorialia from 1378-1595. The second volume (Bd. Ms. 465, numbered 437 on spine) contains, not acts of the Consistory, but decrees of the Congregation of Rites (Congregatio Sacrorum Rituum, a commission of cardinals) from 1605-1615, including much not printed (perhaps because no longer valid) in the official Decreta authentica of this Congregation (Rome, 1898-1901). The third volume (Bd. Ms. 466, numbered 438 on spine) contains the decrees of the Consistory from 1498-1644; the fourth (Bd. Ms. 467, numbered 439), a body of formulae and literary models ("Vota varia Consistorialia") for the use of its officials. The remaining volumes (Bd. Ms. 468-471, numbered 440-443) are Acta in the ordinary sense. Bd. Ms. 468 (numbered 440) covers the closing years of Pope Pius IV (1564-65); Bd. Ms. 469 (numbered 441), the pontificates of Gregory XIV and Innocent IX and the first years of Clement VIII (1591-1599); Bd. Ms. 470 (numbered 442) contains Cardinal Antonio Caraffa's memoirs of the Consistory (1561-1584); and Bd. Ms. 471 (numbered 443) contains the Acta Consistorialia of Cardinal Santori (1570-1595).
