This extraordinary booklet surveys the changing role of the Supreme Pontiff, giving an overview of the many ways it has affected the spiritual and temporal history of the world, starting with the Galilean fisherman and continuing through to Pope Benedict XVI. Over its 2000-year history, the papacy has lived the full range of human experience, including war, murder and exile. The Popes themselves have at times been men of vision and zeal - true saints - and at other times scheming politicians and scandalous sinners; yet the institution founded by Christ himself has survived.
