Good to hear from you directly. We do have the issue of the Vatican trying to declare Jerusalem an independent city controlled solely by the Vatican. That was a League plan, under the Mandate, and also a UN plan when the different plans were made prior and later to 1947, and the November approval of the State of Israel, born in 1948. This idea of complete Christian control has died, but this new Pope is reviving that. Fat chance.
I have documents that talk about it. that the Vatican has always wanted this "solution." They never believed that Jews will give freedom religion as a State in 1948. We did and do give freedom of religion.
Due to the wars the Vatican "plan" never succeeded and never will.
Maybe, Oh Jerusalem by La Pierre and Collins has the information you are looking for.
I also recommended to you the apologia of the Church regarding their behavior in the interwar years. It intersects with making Christianity Universal again by Pius XI and XII and that included Jerusalem. Cymet talks tangentially about it.
Kertzer might also have information, but I truly do not know any specific book that has tried to investigate this unique embarrassment in toto.
When the situation was being finalized, embassies chose Tel-Aviv exactly for this, not knowing what the future will bring,the Vatican's response, and how Israel would hold fast that it belongs to Jews to Jews.
The Church of St Peter is in Rome and the Vatican holds sway on this. That is their purview, not Israel at all. Granted Jesus lived and died as a Jew -and his history is there in the Galilee area,but he did not start Christianity.
I hope this helps you. If you give me more specifics about what you are looking for, I might have more answers for you.
