|Lord John Julius Norwich Absolute Monarchs – The Power of the Popes|
With the papacy facing difficult times, one of the world’s most accomplished historians captures nearly two thousand years of their intrigue, scandal and heroism. The men (and maybe one woman) who have held this position of infallible power over millions have ranged from heroes to rogues and from the admirably wise to the utterly decadent.
Norwich, who knew two popes and had private audiences with two others, recounts the histories of the most significant popes and what they meant politically, culturally, and socially to Rome and the world.
John Julius Norwich is an English historian, travel writer and television personality who has presented some 30 television documentaries and written over 20 books.
