The author, who writes under a pseudonym, is described by Professor C. J. H. Hayes in his preface as a "Catholic religious." She was connected with the Vatican and in this diary records her observations made from that vantage point during the nine months (September 1943 to June 1944) that the city was occupied by the Germans. She has many interesting incidents and impressions to report, though her political horizon is decidedly limited by a distrust of everything even mildly liberal.
