the dignity of the human person and the principle of solidarity shaped the Holy See's perception of its interests and the substance of the Pope's diplomacy. In making the argument, the thesis considers the Holy See's role in international relations; the development of modern Catholic social teaching since Pope Leo XIII's 1891 encyclical, Rerum Novarum; and case studies of John Paul II's diplomacy with respect to Israel, Lebanon, and the wars with Iraq.
