1852 · Boston
González Vigil was the Roman Catholic of Lima, Peru, and in 1848–49 he published his six-volume Defensa de la autoridad de los gobiernos y de los obispos contra las pretensiones de la Curia romana (i.e., "Defense of the Civil and Ecclesiastical Authorities against the pretensions of the Roman Curia") . The pope was not pleased by this challenge to his temporal power and in 1851 placed the book on the Index librorum prohibitorum.
In 1852 González Vigil responded to the pope with his Carta al Papa y análisis del Breve de 10 de junio de 1851, which is here in English translation from a Boston publisher.
=> A scarce American Catholicum. Removed from a nonce volume; a little dusty and some dog-earing. (Inventory #: 37963)
