Henrion, Mathieu Richard. Storia Universale della Chiesa dalla predicazione degli Apostoli fino al Pontificato di Gregorio XVI. Mendrisio: Minerva Ticinese, 1838.

12 volumes in 8vo, half calf. Text in Italian.

A classic History of the Church of the Romantic period, from the Apostles' preaching to the pontificate of Gregory XVI (1846).

The Baron Mathieu-Richard-Auguste Henrion (1805-1862) was a French magistrate, historian, and journalist. After completing his studies in law, he became a member of the Paris Bar as avocat a la cour royale. Under the July Monarchy he was made assistant librarian at the Bibliotheque Mazarine; Napoleon III appointed him counsellor at the court of appeals of La Guadeloupe, whence he was transferred in the same capacity to the court of Aix, a position which he occupied until his death.
An untiring writer, he contributed for the greater part of his life to Catholic and royalist periodicals, first to the Drapeau Blanc, then the Journal de l'Instruction Publique, and to others.
