Fragment of Memorandum by Hagan on Relationship of Irish College w/ Roman Authorities
Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
[no date c.1924/1925] Fragment of a copy typescript [memorandum] by [Hagan], Rome, examining the relations of [the Irish College] with Roman authorities. Addressing relations with the Vatican court, there are only few occasions when they are made to feel that others have the backing of a strong army and navy. Having however to point at length to fact that the greatly adversarial behaviour of the Christian Brothers, and one pro-British brother in particular, has meant a much smaller supply of tickets for the papal audience than other colleges have. Many visitors prefer approaching religious for favours. Turning to the political side of life where 'we are the patients rather [than] the agents': Rome has been 'packed with Anglo-Saxons and Saxonisers' since Cardinal Merry del Val's days of power; listing Fr. Philip Landon OSB as a point in case (breaks off here).
