A Herculean Research Feat

  • Apr 11, 2010
Rating:
+5
This is a fascinating work on the intricacies of the
Papacy over the centuries. For instance, Simon Bar-Jona
or the Apostle Peter was the first Pope. Guarducci
concluded that a box found in the Vatican Grottoes
contained the bones of Peter wrapped in purple clothing
laced with golden threads. Peter is said to be buried
in the Basilica of Rome.

Linus, the second Pope ordered women to cover their heads
while in Church. St. Anacletus presided over the Church
during the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius on 8-24- 79AD.

The volume contains thousands of facts pertinent to the
Papacy over the centuries beginning with the first Pope-the
Apostle Peter. Each Pope is listed together with a brief
bibliography and highlights of the involved reign over the
Church from the election until the end of the Papal tenure.
The fact checking alone would be a considerable job for
any scholar to accomplish. This volume would be perfect for
a religious studies or world history course.
