The "documents" in Volume I are summaries of what purport to be reports sent to the Vatican by its diplomatic representatives abroad (allegedly aimed at organizing a new Holy Alliance against the Soviet Union). Volume II contains analogous reports concerning the Vatican's efforts to overthrow democracy in postwar Italy. The anonymous author of this Communist campaign literature is reputedly a former secretary in the Vatican, later arrested by the Italian police and charged with both falsifying and disclosing secret documents.
