Il cardinale Pietro Gasparri, segretario di Stato (1914–1930)

The new volume of the Pubblicazioni online del DHI Roma, nuova serie, published in Italian, deals with Pietro Gasparri (1852-1934), a central figure of the government of the church in the 20th century. Gasparri was a famous lawyer, an esteemed university professor and a capable papal diplomat. From November 1914 to January 1930 he headed the Foreign Minister and the Roman Curia at a crucial time in the history of Europe and the Papacy. The contributions bundle the results of research seminars on “The International Policy of the Holy See”, which were held in Rome between 2013 and 2016 in collaboration with the Università europea di Roma and the Institut catholique de Paris.
