Medieval Holy See
In the 8th century Pepin the
Short, father of Charlemagne, donated the secular state which is now the Holy See to the
pope. The secular state donated to the pope is a remnant of the "Patrimony of St. Peter".
The Holy See is the
smallest sovereign state in the world. This view overlooks the square in
front of St. Peter's.
