Description
Formal relations between Thailand and the Vatican date to 1669, when Pope Clement IX sent a papal brief to King Narai, though informal relations actually began in the early 16th century with the arrival of the Portuguese and their priests in Siam. Yet the overtures between the country and the Catholic Church became entangled with the purposes of French apostolic vicars, the political interference of Louis XIV, the Jesuits, and the Greek adventurer Phaulkon. In this illustrated history Michael Smithies tells the story through four papal briefs to the king and two touching responses from the king, accompanied by presents, to the pope.
