1984: The United States and Vatican City establish full diplomatic relations after a lapse of 117 years. The United States had maintained consular relations with the Papal States from 1797 to 1867, but those relations lapsed when Congress passed legislation on Feb. 28, 1867, prohibiting any future funding to U.S. diplomatic missions to the Holy See because of mounting anti-Catholic sentiment in America.
