Law of Guarantees
After the overthrow of the
Papal Statesin 1870, Italy's Law of Guarantees accorded the Popecertain honors and privileges similar to those enjoyed by the King of Italy, including the right to send and receive ambassadors who would have full diplomatic immunity, just as if he still had temporal poweras ruler of a state. But the papacy would have been subject to Italian generosity, as it was expected to depend on reliable Italian payments for all time to come. Pope Pius IXand his successors refused to recognize the right of the Italian king to reign over what had formerly been the Papal States, or to be mollified by the Law of Guarantees [cite web|url=http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/07048a.htm|title=Law of Guarantees|work= Catholic Encyclopedia|accessdate=2007-02-18] . They instead considered themselves prisoners of the Vatican, refusing to set foot outside the walls of the Vatican until the Lateran Treatyof 1929 settled the Roman Question.
