Thema: Der Historiker und umtriebige "Camposantiner" Paul Maria Baumgarten (1860-1948). Neues aus römischen und deutschen Archiven

Dr Federica G. Giordani, RIGG staff member, works at the Vatican Archives. Paul Maria Baumgarten, a convert and priest from Wuppertal-Barmen, is one of the most enigmatic figures of the Campo Santo Teutonico. He came to Rome as an assistant to Heinrich Finke, the historian from Münster and later president of the Görres Society. Although highly gifted and versatile, Baumgarten was denied both an ecclesiastical and an academic career.
