THE PAPAL POLICY IN THE BOHEMIAN LANDS DURING ANTONIUS CAETANI’S NUNCIATURE (1607-1609)
Languages of publication
The Papacy extensively used services of its nuncios in enforcement of Counter-Reformation. It was not different in the Bohemian lands, particularly after 1583, when the nunciature resided on the Emperor’s court in Prague. The daring plans of the first nuncios residing in Prague, however, were replaced with a defensive policy under the pontificate of Pope Paul V (1605-1621). This is documented in a general directive to nuncio Antoni Caetani dated 1607. Thus in 1607-1609, Caetani concentrated his activities on defence of Catholic interests against Protestantism, interventions from secular powers and inner discipline in church institutions.
