Italian term or phrase: Vicari Genti
This is a text from a letter written in 1828. Here is the context:
So che in qualche altro luogo non creduto di poter applicare l’articolo 26 Motu Proprio dei 5 Xbre 1824 e l’articolo 39 dell’ultimo Motu Proprio di Xbre 1827, ma la segnatura non ci e convenuta, perche i detti articoli parlano solo dei Vicari Genti, com’Ella potra riscontrare in fonte, e come io la prego di leggergli, unitamente agli articoli 78 e 87 dai due Motu Propri ove si parla sempre di Vicari Genti.

I have problems with Vicari Genti only.

disagree  Leonardo Marcello Pignataro: Probably the abbreviation for Gerenti (G.enti) or a misreading for Gen.li ("l" is quite easily misread like "t" in manuscripts): both abbreviations are commonly used
