Fordham University, The Catholic Church During Italian Unification

These broadsides and pamphlets, originally owned by the Italian Cardinal Carlo Luigi Morichini (1805-1879), offer a window into the activities of the Catholic Church during the period of Italian Unification. As part of a larger collection of 1600 items, this subset of 93 items contains a large amount of unpublished printed matter, including institutional circulars, broadsides, by-laws, and annual reports from charitable organizations, especially church-run hospitals and shelters, and is particularly rich in provenance markings including handwritten dedications and marginalia.
