Product Description

Product Description

The office of bishop of Rome, is one of the most powerful positions in the world. As an ancient institution stretching back for centuries, the papacy has a history that is marked by archaic and modern customs alike. The history of the men who have held this position is fraught with villainous and heroic actions that have left a profound impact on the development of civilization as we know it, both in the West and East.

The popes led the early Church through persecution, acquired temporal power through the actions of Constantine, oversaw the universal Church in the early middle ages, were steeped in various scandals in the late middle ages, saw their secular power stripped in the modern period, and were instrumental in the rise and fall of various kingdoms and nations.

This is one of the best and most informative books re: Popes that I have read. I fully recommend it to anyone interested in the early history of the Vatican.
I would like to order Volume 2 if you have it. If you don't have it, where could I get it? I would like to read the History of Popes to our present day Pope, His Holiness Pope Francis.
Thank you.

A very factual history book that covers a lot of information of the Popes and their historical times. It is a very well formatted book with an excellent table of contents that make very easy to navigate through the book. It has also the excellent quality of all Wyatt North books. I highly recommend this book to Christians of all denominations.

An excellent description of papal reigns-brief yet "enough"- for lay Catholics. Enjoyed reading it; and waiting for next volumes to complete the "picture". Thanks. H. Shah
