For nearly two thousand years the popes have not only shaped the course of one of the world's great religions but have also played a part--sometimes a dominant part--in the history of Europe. Martyrs, monks, noblemen, Franciscans, Dominicans, hermits, and even unordained laymen have occupied the throne of St. Peter. This book recounts the lives and deeds of the popes from Peter to John Paul II.

With timelines, datafiles, quotations, and copious illustrations, Chronicle of the Popes is an essential reference book and a source of discovery and inspiration about one of the richest and most diverse institutions on earth.
