6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By sally tarbox TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 19 Jan. 2011
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Excellent work, lots of b/w and colour illustrations throughout. It's not just of interest to Catholics, as the papacy had such an influence on history generally. Thus we read of how Protestantism was encouraged by the excesses seen in the Church at that time (but how Catholicism fought back through the Counter-Reformation.) There are pages on different religious houses, on important names like Thomas Aquinas, on the Crusades, the Avignon papacy and of course details on each pope (real name, nationality, dates etc) Very interesting

Chronicle of the Popes 21 Sept. 2013
By Celia DLF - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very good historical biography of the Popes from Peter to Benedict. I have some of the other Chronicle of the... books. They are all very good, informative, and as far as I know accurate. Recommended for historical fact lovers.
Great Book, Good Brief History of the Papacy 7 Mar. 2013

This book covers an incredible amount of time and briefly covers enough about each pope to keep readers interested and engaged from start to finish.

The Men from Peter 10 Nov. 2006
By Donna J. Harrell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Mr Maxwell-Stuart having thoroughly investigated the "Vicars of Christ"

presented for all to see the human side of the men who direct the

Catholic Church. After reading only a small portion thus far, I better understand as will everyone, that being Pope takes courage, determination,

and the skills of a first class diplomat to direct such a world wide

organization.
