During the seventeenth century, the choice of the leaders of the Order of Friars Minor was a constant cause of internal conflicts involving both the lay and ecclesiastical powers. The study of the competition for the governing positions of the Franciscans gives us a very different picture from the one given to us by contemporary literature and much of historiography. In this respect the practices of intervention of the Spanish Monarchy and the Holy See in the life  and institutional organization of the Franciscans, in order to ensure – through the appointment of superiors of proven loyalty – a certain degree of control over them, represent a very important yet little studied aspect. Here, as a  matter of fact, various factions clashed, alliances were built, and rumors, news, memoirs and libelli famosi were spread, with no holds barred, to question the loyalty of this or that friar; loyalty and infidelity were indeed rewarded in  order to strike opponents and competitors.
