Certificate to Become a Friar

DATE
Year: 1769
Decade: 1760s
Century: 18th (1701-1800)

Certificate to become a friar for the religious order of “Orden Tercero de Penitencia.” Certificate that gave the religious order to the newly accepted friars, upon completing their novitiate.  The document states that the order has checked that the applicant is “of clean linage, that no ancestor of his has had an evil profession,  and that they have been good and known Christians”. The certificate extends the indulgences and graces of the order to the new friar.
