Dear H-Catholic list members:
We have received a query from David Alvarez, Professor Emeritus, Saint Mary's College of California. His question is below:
For research into efforts at "modernization" in the Papal States in the period 1860-1870, I would appreciate recommendations concerning secondary sources on the administration/bureaucracy of the Papal States in the first half of the nineteenth century. The sources may be in English, French, or Italian.
