Note 1

Treatise defending the divine rights of the bishops against the heretics. The text starts with the statement that some years ago Simanca had written this work against 'temerarios qui contra usum…Ecclesiae Catholicae et contra Concilium Tridentinum dixerunt et scripserunt iuris pontifici peritos, quanvis boni viri, docti et prudentes sint, episcopi tamen esse non posse…'.
