Administration of the Patrimony of the Apostolic See


Administration of the Patrimony of the Apostolic See

The Administration of the Patrimony of the Apostolic See is part of the Roman Curia that deals with the "properties owned by the Holy See in order to provide the funds necessary for the Roman Curia to function". (Pastor Bonus, 172). It was established by Pope Paul VI on 15 August 1967. Its current President is Cardinal Attilio Nicora since 1 October 2002. Cardinals Lorenzo Antonetti and Agostino Cacciavillan are former Presidents.

It is composed of two sections. The Ordinary Section continues the work of the Administration of the Property of the Holy See, a commission to which Pope Leo XIII entrusted the administration of the property remaining to the Holy See after the complete loss of the Papal States in 1870. The Extraordinary Section administers the funds given by the Italian government to implement the Financial Convention attached to the Lateran Treaty of 1929. These funds were previously managed by the Special Administration of the Holy See. ["Annuario Pontificio" 2007 (ISBN 978-88-209-7908-9), p. 1901]

It is distinct from the Prefecture for the Economic Affairs of the Holy See.
