Oration “Si ea quae justa” of Enea Silvio Piccolomini (1438, Basel.) Translated by Michael von Cotta-Schönberg. 4th ed.

Abstract : In 1438, the Council of Basel undertook to confer ecclesiastical offices and benefices instead of the pope whom it had deposed. It therefore became necessary to establish proper procedures, especially for the appointment of bishops. The Committee of Twelve, of which Enea Silvio Piccolomini was a member, drafted a decree requiring commissioners to hear testimonies about candidates for episcopal office and to report back to Council under oath. As the recommendation met with resistance among the council fathers, Piccolomini undertook to defend the motion in an oration to a General Congreation. He was not successful and the proposed decree was not passed.
