Julianus, penitentiarians regens, biskop av Bertinoro

Paulus Scheel, the archpriest of Turku, requests dispensation to serve in his orders and at the altar despite a defect and deformity in his left thumb, which was destroyed when Paulus was on the Russian border with the bishop of Turku to defend the Catholic faith, and an explosive – or part of one – was fired, cutting his thumb off. The regent Julianus, bishop of Bertinoro, grants Paulus dispensation, on condition that the defect is not so great that it causes a scandal among the people and constitutes an impediment in the divine service.
