The launch of works written by history researcher Dr. Rinaldo Marmara, titled “La Casa Della Vergine Maria” and “turkey-Vatican [Pontificate] Through Diplomatic Relations” which is a documented catalog from Vatican archives and published by Istanbul Aydın University; was held in Rome hosted by Gregorian University.
İstanbul Aydın University Assoc. Prof. Mustafa Aydın, Ambassador to Vatican Mr. Lütfullah Göktaş, S.E.R. Mons Lorenzo Piretto, Dean of Faculty of History and Cultural Heritage of the Church, Pontifical Gregorian University Prof Marek Inglot and P. Pio Murat also attended to the launch.
Assoc. Prof. Mustafa Aydın said, “This book published by Istanbul Aydın University Press, contains important documents about the first years of Republic. Especially most of the documents about 19th and 20th century “Turkish history” are in Vatican archives in Italian and French. The purpose of our documented catalog prepared with the great effort of Dear Rinaldo Marmara, is to present the documents which have Turkish abstracts and references to the researchers via Istanbul Aydın University. I would like to thank again Dr. Rinaldo Marmara who is one of the few who can enter the hidden and private archives of Vatican and work in there for many years for creating this unique work and offering an insight into unknown pages of history. I would like to express my gratitude to him on behalf of our university, country and history which has many more unknown key points.”
