A collection of documents in 18 volumes with pertaining to the history of the kingdom of Naples. Each volume contains, in its initial pages, a detailed summary of its contents. The first volume is divided in two parts; the first part contains various essays related to the most important events of the history of the Naples up to 1599. The second part is focused on the relationship between the popes Nicholas V, Callistus III and Pius II, and the kingdom of Naples. The second volume contains a collection of copies of letters and other communications between the kings of Naples, the Papal States and the kings of France and Spain, regarding the position and privileges of the royal chaplain. The third volume contains copies of letters between the Spanish king, Philip II, and the Spanish viceroys of Naples, Pedro Afan de Ribera, Duke of Alcalá (1559-1571) and his successor, the cardinal Antoine Perrenot de Granvelle (1571-1575), in which the rising tension with the apostolic nuncio in Naples is discussed. The fourth volume examines the evolution of the role of the exequatur, the right of the king according to which all papal bulls and breves could be published only with his permission. Volume 5 is composed of different essays on topics that caused friction between secular and religious power, including adultery, bigamy, blasphemy, concubines and papal taxes. The sixth volume contains copies of documents and correspondence between the Spanish viceroys in Naples, the Spanish kings and, in certain cases, clergymen, regarding the interference of the king of Spain in religious matters (including the election of bishops and the payment of taxes by dioceses). Volume 7 pertains to the history of the privileges of the basilica of San Nicola in Bari: the manuscript contains copies of miscellaneous documents whose originals were written between the 13th and 17th century, including correspondence between the king of Spain and the viceroys Pedro Tellez-Giron, Duke of Osuna, and Juan de Zuniga y Avellaneda, Count of Miranda, numerous papal briefs and resolutions related to the fiscal immunity guaranteed to the basilica over the centuries. Volumes 8 and 9 are bound together; the former contains mostly documents related to the authority and benefits granted to inquisitors by the king of Spain and communications to viceroys and local governors on this matter (inquisitors, their families and attendants were also granted hospitality, food and horse care), as well as a small number of letters in which the baroni are instructed to investigate on the dealings of the Knights Templar and, in certain cases, repossess their lands; the latter consists of a series of documents containing instructions on how to deal with heretic or disobedient bishops in the kingdom of Naples. Volume 10 is divided into two parts, both related to ecclesiastic immunity from secular jurisdiction of the clergymen in the dioceses in the kingdom of Naples and Sicily. The first part contains letters from the king of Spain to local governors, ordering them to remit priests who were awaiting judgment to ecclesiastical courts and to free those imprisoned in secular prisons; the second part contains copies of judgments passed by imperial courts on the topic of ecclesiastical immunity. The eleventh volume deals with the creation and collection of decime, taxes imposed by the pope to the dioceses. An 18th-century printed text containing copies of three dispatches by Ferdinand VI on matters related to the Inquisition is bound at the end of volume 11. Volume 12 contains copies of documents, mostly originally written in the 16th century, related to the early years of the Fabbrica di San Pietro, created in 1523 originally to serve as a permanent committee of experts with responsibility for building and administering the basilica di San Pietro. The thirteenth volume is composed of copies of correspondence between Neapolitan kings and queens, the most important being Ferdinand I, Joanna I and Giovanna II, who, in most cases, order the repossession of properties belonging to abbots, priors and other eminent clergymen who had accumulated excessive wealth. In some cases, however, including that of Ferdinand I, king of Naples, and the bishop of Catanzaro, if the ecclesiastic is close to the ruler, the order is to protect him and his property from being repossessed. Volume 14 contains copies of diplomatic correspondence, originally written in the second half of the 16th century, between the Spanish viceroys in Naples and Sicily, Duke of Osuna and Count of Miranda, the Spanish king Philip II, and various members of the papal diplomacy (including Cardinals Giustiniano and Alessandrino, papal legates to the king of Spain). The letters deal with the mounting tension between the Catholic Church and the Spanish crown with regards to the laws passed by the king to decrease ecclesiastic immunity and repossess a number of properties belonging to clergymen. The fifteenth volume contains correspondence and miscellaneous documents (including papal and apostolic bulls) related to the disagreement between the Duke of Alcala' and the papacy over prelates to visiting churches, hospitals and other places governed by nonclerical officers (referred to as extaurita), and taking an account of their administration. Volume 16 incorporates copies of a diverse series of documents pertaining to the benefits granted to the city of Benevento, northeast of Naples, whose dates range from the 9th to the 17th century. Volumes 17 and 18 contain miscellaneous documents related to various aspects of the history of the kingdom on Naples. In particular, the effects of decisions of the Council of Trent (1545-1563) as they were perceived in Naples are discussed in numerous parts of the volumes. However, there are also multiple documents pertaining to a diverse range of subjects (some only marginally related to the history of Naples), including the order from local governors or viceroys to renovate churches and parishes whose buildings were precarious and dangerous; different procedures regarding law enforcement in the case of repeat offenders and how to proceed should the criminal take shelter in a church and invoke the ecclesiastical immunity; the privileges granted to the cities of Siena and Florence by Philip II; and miscellaneous correspondence, and historical and legal documents related to the king of Spain, the viceroys of Naples and Sicily and the Papal States. Volume 19 contains an elaborated summary of the topics discussed throughout the collection
