Sandro Magister (born 1943) is an Italian journalist who writes for the magazine "L'espresso". He specializes in religious news, in particular on the Catholic Church and the Vatican. He has written two books and has taught courses about political history of the Italian episcopate : “Italian Church: Vatican “Politics and Italy 1943-1978” and “Extraparliamentary Church: The Triumph of the Pulpit”. He also manages the website Chiesa on the topic of modern ecclesiastical affairs.[1]

Some days before its official publication on June 18, 2015,[2] Sandro Magister was accused of violating an embargo by publishing parts of the encyclical Laudato si, and was deprived of accreditation to the Vatican press room as a result, on June 16, 2015. Magister's response was that the document was an early draft not covered by the embargo, and that it was obtained by his editor who made the decision to publish, while he himself merely wrote an introduction.[3]
