This masterpiece series covers the most fascinating history in the Western world.
Now you can trace the amazing story of the papacy, the oldest still-functioning institution of any kind in the Western world, in 36 lectures. By focusing on popes that shaped vital moments in global history, you will gain a deep understanding of the people, issues, and ideas that gave us our church and our world. The story features both trouble and triumph - and Fr. O'Malley deftly tackles both aspects - but above all it tells of resiliency. You will be enthralled as you listen to Fr. O'Malley explain how pope after pope responded to challenges from barbarians, "Christian" monarchs, disgruntled bishops, and, above all, the faults and failures of human nature in order to guide Peter's bark through the rugged seas of time.
