Papal Zouave kepi

P.Z.I National Ambassador 

The Papal Zouaves were truly an international unit. With soldiers originating from almost 30 different countries. Each country that contributed soldiers therefore are tied to an important legacy, and each country has kept the memory of the Papal Zouaves alive in their own unique way. One of the goals of Papal Zouave International is to promote the ways a country has preserved the history of the Papal Zouaves. P.Z.I National Ambassadors help accomplish this goal.

Roles of a P.Z.I National Ambassador

  • Act as a liaison between P.Z.I and home country.

  • Represents P.Z.I at pertinent functions, events, and meetings in home country.

  • Promote/create content for P.Z.I specific to home country.

If you believe you would be a good fit as a P.Z.I National Ambassador for your country, please send an email to PapalZouavehistory@gmail.com

Translations

Because the Papal Zouaves were a multi-national unit. There are numerous works written in multiple languages. For example, a memoir written by a Papal Zouave in his native language, usually didn't get translated. To help preserve and promote the stories of the Papal Zouaves, P.Z.I seeks to translate as many works into the modern day Lingua Franca, which is English. There are over 1.35 Billion English speakers in the world, translating works into English therefore, has the potential to reach hundreds of millions more people then if the works remained in their native language.

Here are few examples of languages P.Z.I is seeking to translate

  • French

  • French Canadian

  • Dutch

  • Italian

  • Polish

  • Portuguese

  • Spanish

If you have experience in translating any of these languages into English please, send an email to PapalZouaveHistory@gmail.com. There will be compensation for published works.

Stories of the Papal Zouaves
Volume: 1

Are you a descendent of a Papal Zouave? Or have you written extensively about a particular Papal Zouave?

P.Z.I is seeking collaborators for it's upcoming book Heroes of the 9th Crusade: Stories of the Papal Zouaves Volume 1. The book will be a compendium of the lives of 10-15 Papal Zouaves, with the potential for further volumes in the future. Individuals with extensive knowledge on a particular Papal Zouave, such as family member or researcher will write a 10-30 page summary of his life. The story will then be added to the book so his sacrifice and memory may be preserved. This is the perfect opportunity for Papal Zouaves who's lives may not fill an entire biography, yet who nonetheless, deserve to have their story told.
