Intuition and forsight were very important preconditions of the papal nuncios. These features enabled them to act in the spirit of Curia diplomacy without any direct consultations with Rome if the situation required this. However, the nuncios' right or wrong steps could have led to unpleasant consequences, which can be seen on two examples from the Prague nunciature from the turn of the 16th and 17th century.
