Project Details


To make known and foster the historical study of the archives of the pontificate of Pope Pius XII, after their opening on 2 March 2020. The aim is to promote scientific projects with different approaches: from the dialectics of different models of the 'West' to the international socio-political reality; from the Holy See's intervention in the face of authoritarian regimes in the 20th century to the process of decolonization; from Pope Pacelli's strictly political approaches to Euro-Atlantic relations, etc.
This project counts with the cooperation of 4 institutions: Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Pontificia Università Gregoriana, Universidad de Navarra and the Universidade Católica Portuguesa.
Effective start/end date1/09/2131/12/25
