Edit: this seems to be very much at odds with what he says in the translation at Rorate of his most recent essay on Coronavirus. What next? Is Mattei going to say that the Bishops can't condemn birth control and abortion because such statements lie outside their expertise?
[Gloria.tv] The Roman historian Roberto de Mattei critizised Archbishop Viganò's appeal against the Coronavirus regime.
De Mattei told Die-Tagespost.de (13 May) that it perplexes him when bishops comment on "health measures" taken by governments because this "exceeds their field of expertise." However, such a self-evident statement is hardly enough to disqualify the Viganò appeal.
Viganò made his only public appearance in recent years at a Munich rally organised by De Mattei, thus helping it to gain international fame.
