I don't know the english term, in Dutch it's called relatieve aansluiting (relative connection?). A relative pronoun can have a similar meaning as a conjunction and a relative pronoun together, i.e.: qui = et qui.

quae res: et quae res: and this thing (i.e. visiting the curia) made him hear and see famous man.

At least, this is how I saw this piece. Others may be more enlightening...

Saluē Ingrid70,

And thanks; your suggestion makes a lot more sense then my translation. I always thought the relatives referring to one word of the previous phrase, and never that they could refer to the all phrase.

Once more thanks for your help,

Andrus
