Comments: The manuscript presents the response of Pope Clement
VIII (1592-1605), prepared by Lombard, to twelve questions proposed by
Catholic priests who had been incarcerated in the town of Wisbeach,
Cambridgeshire. The twelve questions consider the legitimacy of the
powers of the King of England and the Pope in temporal and religious
affairs and whether the king may be rightfully deposed or killed.
