MI5 Report Releases Details About Nazi Vatican Plot
March 15, 2010
The report, which was discovered after a tip was given by Giuseppe Dosi, an Italian police officer and Allied informant, says that six agents went to work in the Vatican.
Each were disguised as a monk, and lived in a building bought to pose as a seminary.
The six agents allegedly came under suspicion after it was realized how little they knew about Catholicism and biblical doctrine, as well as their obvious interest in women.
The report said that as a part of the plan “the immunity of the Vatican buildings in Rome was to be exploited to the advantage of the German Intelligence Service.
“The plan … set up a Georgian cloister in Rome under Vatican protection and among the monks introduce agents who were to keep contact with German intelligence.”
