|Notes:||This is one of eighteen "mandati camerali," or bank drafts, identified as spurious by John Shearman in his "Raphael in Early Modern Sources" (Yale University Press, 2003), vol. 2, pp. 1531, item F47. The document purports to be an official note authorizing the papal treasurer and banker to issue a monthly payment (for April 1516) to Raphael for services rendered to the Vatican, and signed by Raphael upon receipt of payment. According to Shearman, the document bears a genuine seal of the Treasurer, cut from another document and pasted on. Shearman discounts the authenticity of the document based on evidence that Raphael was not salaried and did not collect payment monthly.
