5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, informative and well written 22 Jan 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
A book which I found contained new and insightful facts about the papacy and the Roman Catholic Church through the ages. Hall writes in an informed and authorititive manner, clearly comfortable with his subject. I particularly liked the chapters concerning the papacy and the extermination of the Jews in the Second World War; an episode which does not reflect much credit on the church or its hierachy. I reccommend this book to anyone interested in history, in religion or just for a thumping good read about one of the world's dominant forces. end.

With his typical wit and veuve, Allan Hall has mastered the intricate workings of the Vatican in a way that others can only envy. At times lyrical, this potted tour d'horizon will be invaluable to students of papal history and must become the standard text for a future generation.

Although a very brief book, I found it to be just enough "overview" information to pique my interest in some more specific topics surrounding the history of the Papacy.
