Born Bartolomeo Alberto Cappellari (1765-1846), he served as pope from 1831 to 1846. Strongly conservative and traditionalist, he opposed democratic and modernizing reforms in the Papal States and throughout Europe, seeing them as fronts for revolutionary leftism, and sought to strengthen the religious and political authority of the papacy. ALS in Italian, signed “Card. Cappelari,” one page, 7.5 x 9.5, July 25, 1829. Untranslated letter to Giorgio Medad in Livorno, also addressed on the reverse of the second integral page in his own hand. In very good condition, with intersecting folds passing through portions of the signature, light overall foxing, and a few noticeable wrinkles. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
