From the Christ year 1625, the 15th day of the month of August by grace
and with the protection of God and the Virgin Mary.
In this book all of those who will join in matrimony will be recorded
by order of the illustrious and reverend Signor Marsili Archbishop and
Count of Chieti, during the period when Pietro di Torricella was abbot.
Translation of the first wedding
I, Pietro Abbot of Torricella, am full of undoubted faith while in
these three days of celebration I record the marriage during a solemn
holy mass between Cipriano D'Antrilli and Laura Di Marino in this month
when we celebrate the holiday of San Pietro in Vincoli, the second
Sunday from the eleventh one from the Pentecost, the third Sunday from
the twelfth one from the Pentecost and, because there was no obstacle to
this union, and with Giovanni Domenico Porreca present, between Giovanni
Belardi Ficcaglia, I married them in the church of San Giacomo.
