Several colleagues and friends graciously read the manuscript and made crucial recommendations that helped me reshape the book. I would like to thank especially Marcia B.

Many offices and institutions enabled my research and the completion of the book, which include: the Archivio Segreto Vaticano, the Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana, and the staff at the Interlibrary Loan office at Old Dominion University.
