[59. ON CONFIRMATIONS
MADE BY OTHER CHURCH PRELATES]
Dictators of patriarchs,
archbishops and bishops can all maintain this style of confirming, suitably changing those
things which must be changed.
[59.2] Abbots, archdeacons, deacons, primicerii,
provosts, archpriests, plebani, priests and priors can make their confirmations
solemn. But this is not in general custom, since they make their gifts redacted in writing
by a public notary.354 Nevertheless it would not be
repugnant to the law if they were to make confirmations in this manner.
[59.3] Suppose that one of these had a chapel,
in which the parishioners should elect a priest and that he ought afterwards confirm the
elected candidate. Whence he could make a confirmation in this manner:
[59.4] G., by divine permission humble
archpriest of the parish of Montevecchio and all those who are brothers with him, to the
beloved son P., a priest, greetings and benediction.
