9780300115970: Saints and Sinners: A History of the Popes; Third Edition (Yale Nota Bene)

This abundantly illustrated book encompasses the extraordinary history of the papacy, from its beginnings nearly two thousand years ago to the reign of Pope John Paul II.
"Duffy offers a comprehensive overview of the 2,000-year history of the papacy. . . . This digestible survey provides a compelling introduction to one of the most durable and significant institutions to influence the course of Western civilization."—Booklist
"As [Duffy] works his way through the papal roll of honour and dishonour, he is always careful to re-create the political, social and economic background to different reigns. He eschews opaque ecclesiastical jargon and, where a theological or doctrinal dispute has to be explained, he does so in a way that even those unversed in biblical concepts or Christian history will immediately grasp. . . . [An] outstanding work of popular scholarship."—Peter Stanford, The Daily Telegraph

Review:

"A minor masterpiece which is everything good, popular history ought to be... The most comprehensive single-volume history of the popes in print." John Adamson, Sunday Telegraph "... will intrigue the faithful as well as the skeptical." Economist "Duffy enlivens the long march through church history with anecdotes that bring the different pontiffs to life... Saints and Sinners is a remarkable achievement." Piers Paul Read, The Times, London "Will fascinate anyone wishing to better understand the history of the Catholic Church and the forces that have shaped the role of the papacy." Gloria J. Tysl, Christian Century"
