Revision 1: August 18, 2010. The definitive, no stones left unturned handbook for the next papal election following the reign of the current pope, Benedict XVI. By the author of 'Popes and the Tale of Their Names' and the publisher of the 'www.popes-and-papacy.com' web site. This is a book for anybody that is interested in the popes, papacy, conclaves and Catholicism. This large book is full of insights, analysis, opinions, statistics and trivia. The author's prior book was applauded for its unique look at papal history through the prism of papal names. This book, six times the size, covers potential papabili, papal eligibility, conclaves, papal elections, College of Cardinals and papal names with a similar passion and intensity. A must read for anybody even vaguely interested about popes.
