Abstract

At the margin of the historiographic debate on the attitude of the Holy See in confrontation with Anti-Semitism that was propagated in the 30s by totalitarian Nazism and Fascism, the question about the relation between Pius XI and the Roman Curia in the last months of his pontificate continues to invoke interest of scholars everywhere. The image of a mostly isolated Pope whose collaborators seemed everything but acting sensible – lest hostile – and his prophetical call, was in fact in the center of interest of many scholars who researched in this field. There are numerous questions that remain unanswered that can be reduced to two themes: on the one hand the will of Achille Ratti to distance himself from the traditional catholic antiJudaism, on the other hand the difference of the aged and sick pope and the secretary of State Eugenio Pacelli, who would become his successor on the Throne of Peter.
