Am Montag, den 22. November hält Herr Dr. Luca Carboni (Segretario dell'Archivio Segreto Vaticano) um 17:00 Uhr c.t. im Hörsaal des Instituts einen Vortrag mit dem Titel:

The Vatican Secret Archives and their historical heritage: An international centre for historical research.

The presentation will start with a brief description of the documents held in the Vatican Secret Archives and their geographical and chronological extension which reflect the long and complex history of the Roman Curia and the Catholic Church. Secondly, I will talk about the particular relation between the Archives and the Sovereign Pontiff during the past: as a famous historian wrote, the pope had “one body and two souls”: he was the governor of the Catholic Church and at the same time the temporal prince of local law. The Archives reflect this special condition. Furthermore, I will give an overview of the long history of the Vatican Archives, talking about the opening to scholars under Leo XIII (1881) and the beginning of the international research missions, concluding with a presentation of the research opportunities at the Vatican Archives today.

Der Vortrag findet in englischer Sprache statt. Gäste sind herzlich willkommen!
