abstract

The essay deals with the employment of Vatican Radio as a modern instrument, which supplied the Catholic Church with a tool of modernisation. A special focus is put on the changes, in terms of method and content, that the radio effected in the apostolate. In order to demonstrate the increasing importance acquired by Vatican Radio for the diplomatic and propaganda aims of the Holy See, it will be considered the case-study of the condemnation of the Croatian anti-Semitic laws during World War II.
