To Catholics and non Catholics alike, the workings of the Vatican, together with it's colourful history remain a source of fascination. How did this ' monarchy ' arise and who were the men who created it and made a central feature of Western life? The Papacy starts with St Peter, traditionally the 1st bishop of Rome. Eight academics under the editorship of Paul Johnson review 2,0000 years of the papacy. Highly illustrated, the achievements and effects, historical and cultural, theological and geographical, of the See of Rome are brought to life in this book.
