A History of the Popes tells the story of the oldest living institution in the Western world--the papacy. From its origins in Saint Peter, Jesus' chief disciple, through Pope Benedict XVI today, the popes have been key players in virtually all of the great dramas of the western world in the last two thousand years. Rather than describe each pope one by one, this engaging narrative focuses on the popes that shaped pivotal moments in both church and world history.

From Library Staff

This simultaneously reverent yet critical book will appeal to readers interested in both religion and history as it chronicles the saints and sinners who have led the Roman Catholic Church over the past 2000 years.
