The Vatican’s opening in 2006 of its archives for the period of the papacy
of Pius XI (1922 – 1939) has prompted a burst of historical research which
is not only shedding new light on the role of the Holy See and the Church
in this period of extraordinary political and social turmoil, but also on
some of the major world events of this period. In 2008 a number of
institutions have come together to create a research network with the aim
to bring scholars from the many different countries who are working in
these archives together and to highlight this emerging work to the broader
scholarly community. This book represents the proceedings of the
conference of this research network, held in Providence (Rhode Island) at
the Brown University in October 28 – 30, 2010.
