Benedetto XV e la Rivoluzione messicana

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Benedict XV and the Mexican Revolution

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[Autom. eng. transl.] The pontificate of Giacomo Della Chiesa (1914-1922) coincided almost entirely with the period in which the Holy See found itself without a representative in Mexico. Only at the end of 1921 a new apostolic delegate was able to go to Mexico City. The closure of the Apostolic Delegation contributed to making the Vatican decision-making process very fragmented, due to the frequent intervention of actors outside the Secretariat of State and to pontifical diplomacy. In the years of Benedict XV the Mexican Church experienced a harsh persecution, crowned by the publication (February 5, 1917) of the anticlerical constitution of Querétaro, which later contributed to determine the causes of the bloody religious conflict of the 1920s.
