Italy and the Vatican: the 1984 Concordat between Church and State


Maria Elisabetta de Franciscis

Contents: The political process by which Italy and the Vatican reached an agreement to revise the 1929 Lateran Accords. The process is analyzed through the pressures the society at large, and the political parties in particular exercised on the government, and through the Church's own inward conflict against the persistance of temporal power.
