La Civilta Cattolica ("The Catholic Civilization") is founded by Pope Pius IX as a Jesuit magazine under the direction of the papacy. A group of Jesuit priests is responsible for the publication, but only in order to make known the official views of the popes.

Articles in Civilta Cattolica are closely supervised by the Vatican's Secretary of State and it is normal for the pope himself to review each issue before it is sent out to ensure that everything in it conforms to official Vatican positions. As a consequence, it is reasonable to assume that anything which appears in La Civilta Cattolica reflects the opinions of the current pope and is considered by him to be an orthodox Christian position — especially after it is moved from Naples to Rome itself in the 1880s.
