Abstract

The epistolary networks within the Catholic missionary Church represent an invaluable but still little explored usage domain of
the Italian language. This thesis explores the role of Italian as a language of international communication in the 19th century Roman Church through a linguistic analysis of the letters that the founder of the mission of New Norcia, Rosendo Salvado wrote in Italian to Propaganda Fide, the Roman institution in charge of Catholic missions worldwide (1849-1900). As well as
confirming the role of Italian within the international Catholic clergy, this study brings new evidence to research on 19th century non-literary written Italian.
