The aim of this article is to examine the capacity of the Holy See, as one non-state entity which is acknowledged as possessing international legal personality, to conclude treaties and other international agreements of an international juridical nature. One may wonder whether there is any need to inquire into the treaty-making capacity of the Holy See once it is accepted that that entity is an international legal person, as understood in international law.
