Catholic Church. Congregatio Negotiis et Consultationibus Episcoporum et Regularium Praeposita. (corporateBody)

This congregation is generally known simply as Bishops and Regulars. Its origin can be traced to the cardinalatial commission set up by Pius V (1566-1572) under the apostolic visitor, Bartolomeo di Porcia in 1570, to examine relations with the patriarch of Aquileia. The commission continued to function even after its initial task had been accomplished. Gregory XIII (1572-1585), recognizing the usefulness of these visits, used it for other purposes from 1573 to 1576, particularly for...

Catholic Church. Congregatio Reverendae Fabricae Sancti Petri. (corporateBody)

This congregation is better known by its Italian name, the Fabbrica di San Pietro. On April 18, 1506, Pope Julius II laid the first stone of the great new basilica dedicated to St. Peter that was to replace the first basilica constructed by Constantine the Great. By the bull Admonet nos suscepti of December 12, 1523, Pope Clement VII formally established the Reverenda Fabbrica di San Pietro in the Vatican, an administrative entity to provide for the basilica's reconstruction and sub...

Catholic Church. Poenitentiaria Apostolica (corporateBody)

The Apostolic Penitentiary has jurisdiction for the sacramental and nonsacramental internal forum (i.e., matters affecting the private spiritual good of individuals); issues decisions on questions of conscience; grants absolutions, dispensations, commutations, sanations and condonations; and has charge of nondoctrinal matters pertaining to indulgences. It is one of the three tribunals of the Holy See. Some find traces of it, or at least the idea for it, in the works of t...

Biblioteca apostolica vaticana (corporateBody)

The Scrinium of the Roman Church existed from the 4th century, functioning as both library and archives. In the 6th century it was under the Primicerius Notariorum (see ID VATV032-A). By the end of the 8th century it was headed by the Bibliothecarius, who also served as the chancellor. This library was lost in the 13th century. New collections were transferred to Avignon with the papal court, and were left there when the popes returned to Rome. The present library was founded by Nic...

Catholic Church. Congregatio super Residentia Episcoporum. (corporateBody)

Papal States. Congregazione del censo (corporateBody)

From the early fourteenth century the Apostolic Camera was both the financial and juridical bureau for the Papal States as well as for the church itself. Moreover, its financial policy and that of the Papal States were always closely related. During the second half of the fifteenth century, however, a great change occurred in ecclesiastical finance. Income from total ecclesiastical sources of revenue amounted to only a third of what it had been in the fourteenth century, but that fr...

Catholic Church. Congregatio Consistorialis (corporateBody)

This congregation derives its title from the Consistory, or College of Cardinals, since its chief duty has been to prepare matters, by examination and discussion, for the Consistory. Among the congregations founded by the constitution Immensa aeterni Dei (22 Jan 1588), Sixtus V gave third place to the Congregatio pro Erectione Ecclesiarum et Provisionibus Consistorialibus. The congregation was charged with preparing the acts regarding decisions for the formal approval of...

Catholic Church. Dataria Apostolica (corporateBody)

As early as the fourteenth century, the precise date on which the pope granted a particular favor was often a matter of crucial importance. The dating of the supplication, which could be also antedated, signaled the moment from which the grant of the grace had juridical validity. This became important if the same benefice was granted to two persons, because the earliest dated concession generally carried priority. There were other instances where a date might be important, for examp...

Catholic Church. Camera apostolica (corporateBody)

The Apostolic Camera, one of the most ancient of the offices of the Roman Curia, was originally responsible for the administration of the temporalities and revenues of the Holy See. Although the term Camera appeared for the first time in Benedict VIII's constitution Quoties illa a Nobis (24 May 1017), some authors state it was the continuation of an office that had existed and been known for a long time as palatium or fiscus under the direction of the archdeacon who remained at the ...

Papal States. Congregazione del buon governo (corporateBody)

Established in 1592 by Clement VIII to regulate economic activity and public administration in the Papal States. Its responsibilities paralleled those of the Sacra Consulta (ID VATV672-A) which was responsible for administrative and judicial affairs. The congregation was given extensive authority over many aspects of public life, including control over the budget, apportionment of taxes, liquidation of public debts, the census, local elections, and criminal and civil actions. It was...

After the restoration of the Papal States in 1814, Pius VII appointed a commission of cardinals to organize all the courses of study in the papal territory (motu proprio Quando per ammirabile disposizione, 6 Jul. 1816), and drew up a plan for the "reorganization of the public administration and the tribunals of the papal regions." The pontiff's death in 1823, however, prevented the proposed reorganization from being carried out. During the following year Leo XII put the ...

Catholic Church. Congregatio Sacrorum Rituum (corporateBody)

This congregation was established by Sixtus V as the Congregatio pro Sacris Ritibus et Caeremoniis (constitution Immensa aeterni Dei, Jan. 22, 1588). According to some authors, it absorbed a cardinalatial commission formed by Gregory XIII, as early as 1572, to reform the ceremonies of the papal chapel. Although the principal task of the new congregation was to attend to the moderation of the Latin liturgy "in all the churches of Rome and throughout the world," the bulk of its work w...

Shortly after the closing of the Council of Trent on December 4, 1563, Pius IV (1559-1565) appointed a commission of cardinals (Dec. 30, 1563) to ensure the application of the council's disciplinary decrees. With the motu proprio Alias Nos nonnullas (Aug. 2, 1564), he formally recognized this commission and established it as a permanent congregation called Congregatio super Executione et Observantia Sacri Concilii Tridentini et Aliarum Reformationum. From the beginning it was common...

Catholic Church. Rota Romana (corporateBody)

From the earliest days of the Church judicial problems and reserved cases were referred to Rome for solution. By the end of the twelfth century this continual and ever-increasing flood of requests became too burdensome for the Consistory of Cardinals. The popes, therefore, began to refer cases to members of the papal household who were called cappellani papae. This group, which was dependent on the Apostolic Chancery (ID VATV032-A), seems to be the antecedent, if not the origin of t...

Catholic Church. Secretariatus Status (corporateBody)

The office of secretarius intimus (private secretary) was entrusted by Leo X (1513-1521) to Pietro Ardighello, an assistant to Cardinal Giulio de' Medici (the future Clement VII [1523-1534] and a cousin of Leo X), who took over the direction of foreign affairs dealing with all correspondence in the vernacular, especially with the apostolic nuncios who were entrusted by that time with diplomatic missions of a permanent character. The correspondence was carried on in the name but no longer under t...

The Congregation of the Holy Office was, until 1908, called the Congregatio Romanae et Universalis Inquisitionis seu Sancti Officii. The primary function of this congregation was to assist the pope in his task of preserving the integrity of the church doctrine on faith and morals, although the manner of operation has varied over the centuries. The earliest traces of the Church's concern for preserving this integrity can be found in Lucius III's constitution Ad abolendam ...
