With colonial expansion they've found there way across the globe. Now an international research projects seeks to establish a comprehensive history & typology of the jugs. So if you have seen one of those shown in the Wanted Foto attached, get in touch with the researchers!

Alexander Koller is deputy director at the DHI Rome and we couldn’t have found anyone more suitable to write the article on papal for the . He has published extensively on Italian and German relations in the 16th and 17th c. His special interest being the papacy. He even edited two volumes of the reports of the nuncios.

For the handbook Koller takes us on a tour de force through centuries of papal diplomacy that has its roots in the antiquity. (3/6)

@historikerinnen @histodons @earlymodern

Talking about papal diplomacy one has to differentiate between legations and permanent nunciatures. By the 16th c. 13 such nunciatures had been established, e.g. in Florence, Cologne and Brussels. (4/6)

@historikerinnen @histodons @earlymodern

Papal diplomats – legates as well as nuncios – differed from other secular diplomats, as it was their task to represent the Apostolic See on a spiritual and a secular level.
But just like other diplomats papal envoys’ main tasks were representing, negotiating and of course reporting – the many volumes of the reports of the nuncios are an impressive testimony to this.
Koller thereby not only explains the development of papal diplomacy and its legal aspects, but also takes a closer look on the careers, the assignments and the daily life of the papal diplomats. (5/6)

"The modus operandi of men like Hawkins was to sail to Guinea, acquire a cargo of enslaved people, by force and/or barter, and ship them to the Spanish Caribbean and Mexico.91 Here, Hawkins would claim inclement weather had forced him to the area (a tactic used by many illicit traders), offer platitudes to local officials and sometimes promise to help clear out foreign pirates from the area.92 In return, he asked the Spanish to purchase his enslaved people. If that failed, he became aggressive, after which the local elites, often under-manned and in relatively lightly defended settlements, would agree to purchase his human cargo."
