Presentation of "The Holy See and the United States, 1932–1939" by Cristina Rossi

Author: Costanza Montanari

Cushwa Event

A new book by Cristina Rossi, entirely based on Vatican documents, was the occasion for the Cushwa Center for the Study of American Catholicism to convene a lively and well attended seminar on the Holy See's relationship with the United States in the crucial period immediately preceding World War Two (Santa Sede e Stati Uniti, 1932-39, Aracne Editrice).

Chaired by Kathleen Sprows Cummings, the director of Cushwa Center, the seminar included Rome's most eminent experts in the field -- Michael D. Driessen (John Cabot University), Johan Ickx (Vatican's Secretariate of State, Historical Archives of Relations with the States), Matteo Sanfilippo (Università della Tuscia and Director of Center for Migration Studies), Roberto Regoli (Head of the Church History Department, Gregorian University), and Massimiliano Valente (European University of Rome). The latter is Cristina Rossi's former mentor.

This seminar was one of several planned by the Cushwa Center in conjunction with the Rome Global Gateway.
