Customer Review

on 9 April 2012
I have to say as a general interest history book this is quite fantastic. The book is a history of the papacy from the earliest recorded times. It actually deals with how the papacy was actually formed and the power and money struggles as well as the intrigues of how everything worked. It was quite an eye opener in how the early papacy wasn't really "holy" and how a lot of things were done for money. Some of the really shocking tales are of the selling of indulgences, and the massacres of the Cathar population. The book is quite easily readable and will take a week or two reading chapter by chapter. Overall quite a nice easy reading book for general knowledge. Recommend!
