Source Notes

Nick Campion quotes the New York Times for the time that the Vatican became an independent city state. On p. 431 of The Book of World Horoscopes, Cinnabar Books, 1988, Campion notes that "Independence was gained by the Vatican at 11.00 AM on 7 June 1929 when Mussolini, the Italian Prime Minister, and Cardinal Gasparri exchanged the instruments of ratification in Rome."

Sy Scholfield quotes from "Pope Becomes Ruler of a State Again," New York Times, 8 June 1929, p. 1: "Rome, June 7.--From 11 o'clock this morning there was another sovereign independent State in the world. At that time Premier Mussolini ... exchanged with Cardinal Gasparri ... ratifications of the treaties signed at the Lateran Palace on Feb. 11. By that simple act the sovereign independent State of Vatican City came into existence."
