【慈幼通訊社 ─ 2022 年5月 31 日阿根廷Bahía Blanca訊】 ─ 有關「真福柯蒂美．澤德」慈幼歷史檔案，南阿根廷「真福澤菲林．會蒙古拉」會省決定把真福暨未來聖人柯蒂美．澤德的一系列資料上網，向慈幼家庭及研究團體展示，以促進他生平及事業的傳播。雖然這些資料一向已對外公開，然而由於教宗方濟各剛核准了促成他封聖的一項神蹟，因此相關的資料檔案工作現已加強。
這些資料（文獻、相片、人像畫及名信片）是認識柯蒂美．澤德的起點，讓他揭示自己的一生。這一系列的歷史資料，講述有關他於阿根廷巴塔哥尼亞Río Negro會省的越瑪（Viedma），所作的牧民及專業工作，由慈幼歷史檔案部Bahía Blanca分部保存。
Historical materials on future saint Artemide Zatti, SDB available online
(ANS – Argentina–Bahía Blanca, 31 May 2022) – The Salesian Historical Archive of the “Blessed Zeffirino Namuncurá” Province of Southern Argentina has decided to make a series of material on the blessed and soon-to-be saint Artemide Zatti available to the Salesian Family and the research community to foster the dissemination of his life and work. Although this information has always been available, due to Pope Francis’ recent approval of a miracle that will lead to his proclamation as a saint, the archival work has been enhanced.
These materials (texts, photographs, iconographies, postcards), which are a starting point for getting to know Artemide Zatti and letting him speak to one’s life, are a collection of historical materials from his pastoral and professional work in Viedma, Río Negro Province, Patagonia, Argentina, preserved in the Bahía Blanca branch of the Salesian Archives.
This mini-website is designed so that historians, researchers, catechists, pastoral coordinators, teachers and others interested in the topic can have these materials at their fingertips, which will enable them to learn more about Artemide Zatti. But that’s not all: over time, the Salesian Historical Archives team will continue to upload and add more materials as they go.
Building on many years of experience in preserving the historical heritage of the Congregation in its own local reality, (the Historical Archives of Northern Patagonia, based in Bahía Blanca, and the Salesian Central Archives, based at the Provincial House in Almagro, were founded in 1956), the current Salesian Historical Archive of Southern Argentina organizes and preserves the documents produced by the Province, to preserve and enhance, including through dissemination, those sources that record the Salesian past in Argentina, from the arrival of the first missionaries sent by Don Bosco in 1875, to the present day.
Every year hundreds of researchers and students pass through its two locations to retrace nearly 150 years of Salesian history in Argentina.
