Correspondence of Cardinal József Mindszenty with the Holy See from the American Legation, 1956–71

Correspondence of Cardinal József Mindszenty with the Holy See from the American Legation, 1956–71

“ […] truth and conscience oblige me to expressly declare and state: I would not have been and could not have been an obstacle to the just settlement of the relations between the Church and State, unless perhaps in the sense that I could never renounce the fundamental rights of the Church. I hold to this responsibility.” (Cardinal Mindszenty to Pope Paul VI, Budapest, June 28, 1971). Cardinal Joseph Mindszenty (1892–1975) was in 1956–71 “guest” of the American Embassy in Budapest, Hungary. This volume documents his letters to the Holy See and throws light on the thinking of the Cardinal considered in his time an advocate of freedom for Hungary and for the World.
