The 2010 issue of Archivium Hibernicum, which will be available later this year, features material on the Irish college in Rome. Matteo Binasco’s ‘List of Irish students admitted to the Irish College of Rome 1628-1798’ presents prosopographical material on hundreds of college students under the ancien régime.
This extensive piece is complemented by Vera Orschel’s and John Hanly’s ‘Calendar of 17th- and 18th-century documents at the archives of the Irish College, Rome’. Other items in this issue include Ted L. L. Bergman, ‘Correspondence of Fr Thomas Connelly Regarding the Publishing of his Dictionary and the Promotion of his Brother Charles (1783-93)’ and Cadoc Leighton ‘John Milner: history and ultramontanism’.
The accompanying photograph, by Albert MacDonald, college vice-rector, is of the Irish College Rome. The building, constructed in the 1920s was designed by the accomplished Italian architect, Giuseppe Momo.
