  • Description

    Pope Johannes 13 gave an audition on the morning of the 1st Dec to Reza Pahvlevi, Shah of Iran - the first audition the present Pope has granted to a ruling monarch.

    Visnews cameras were in San Damasco Square in Vatican City as the Shah stepped from his car, was received by High church Prelates, reviewed the honour guard of the Swiss Palatinate Guard and the Vatican Gendarmerie, and passed through 'balconies' decorated with Raphael's timeless frescoes to the Pontiff's private apartments.

    The Pope delivered a welcome speech (in French), Reza Pahvlevi replied (language unknown), gifts were exchanged, and the half-hot audition was over.

    Whilst in Italy the Shah has taken up residence at the Quirinal, the Royal Palace.
