Diocese of Naples Archive (Archivio Diocesi di Napoli) (Italy)

The Archive of the Neapolitan Archbishopric had its origin, according to a script of 1739 preserved in the same Archive, in the year 1598. The writing dates back to that year a decree of the Congregation of Bishops and Regulars with which it was ordered that all the writings, acts and processes of the Archbishop vel Curia were to be placed and kept in the particular rooms intended for this purpose by the Most Eminent Archbishop Gesualdo, with two keys, one to be kept by the Chancellor of the Curia and the other by the Vicar General or by another person designated by the Archbishop.
