PADRE SALVATORE LENER
Letter from the priest and author/journalist, responding to a letter regarding a translated letter he does not prefer (saying he prefers his writings in his books), that he has no photograph for publication, and writing a brief biography. Extremely rare!
Typed letter signed: "Salvatore Lener S.j.", in black ink, 1 page, 8½x11. January 2, 1975. Rome, Italy. Translated (roughly), in full: "Last August I was absent from Rome and our homes and remained closed: there have been so, for the strikes, many postal problems. Now I get your recommended 23 December and reply immediately. 1. The translation and the reduction of my letter of November 11, 1957 I do not sodisfano much.

Professor of procedural law at the University of Rome. Priest of the Society of Jesus. Professor of International Law at the Pontifical Lateran university. Journalist. respectful greetings". A lawyer for nearly 40 years before entering the priesthood, Padre Salvatore Lener (1907-1983) championed conservative and well-practiced catholic beliefs during his life, often speaking on debates on relations between the Church and the State in Italy while working as a paid journalist for La Civilta Cattolica. Graduating with a degree in law while living in Rome, he entered the Society of Jesus in 1938, and completed his priesthood in 1945. Many of the issues he spoke of were newly arising in Italy, such as the more popular occurrence of divorce, and the uprising of women's emancipation and rights, believing both issues to contradict the teachings of the church. Most of his more critical and well-received articles and writings were widely published, and are often used as reference material for scholarly papers involving both the church and the law. Normal mailing folds. Creased throughout, with heavy crease conflicting with text on upper half. Light surface creases. Small tear on top left corner. Corners slightly worn and creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
