Publisher's Summary:
This 3 volume English language edition of the major reference work Dictionnaire Historique de la Papuate , not only covers all of the popes (and anti-popes) from St Peter to John Paul II, but also topics connected to the institution of the papacy. Coverage includes religous orders, papal encyclicals, historical events, papal controversies, the arts, and more. Written by an international team of scholars, it includes bibliographies, cross-references and an extensive index.Much more than a biographical dictionary of the popes, it will become the standard reference for all issues concerning the papacy.
