AbstractThis notice is intended to deal with the analysis about the schism between Rome and Portugal - that is, the cutting of diplomatic relations between the two courts - which took place between 1728 and 1738. The episode resulted in the most immediate level, the refusal to grant parity in Rome to Portugal ahead of other European courts, denying the rise of Monsignor Vicente Bicchi, the title of Cardinal. This policy is formed in a traditional diplomatic language, to which Rome remained the center of Christianity. In contrast, differs very much, despite the view of foreigners as D. Luis da Cunha, of trues loci of power in the seven hundred, represented by the monarchies to consolidate - in France, England, Austria, Prussia and even in Russia - and operating from a rate of secular state, that is, modern diplomatic language.
