Passing the Keys: Modern Cardinals, Conclaves and the Election of the Next…
No descriptions found.
"Passing the Keys is an invaluable narrative of one of the most heavily guarded and important histories in Christendom, that of the papal elections. With its in-depth descriptions of the elections and theological positions of Popes Leo XIII, Pius X, Benedict XV, Pius XI, Pius XII, John XXIII, Paul VI, John Paul I, and John Paul II, Burkle-Young provides the most complete picture available of modern Catholicism at the highest level. More important, the author looks ahead to the third millennium and suggests the principles and lessons that will govern the upcoming conclave and suggests the most likely candidates for the papacy. Burkle-Young explores the most pressing theological issues - including the current state of the priesthood and the debates waged over contraception and women as priests and bishops - that now guide the College and influence the future of the Vatican."--BOOK JACKET.
