Summary
Internationally best-selling author, renowned professor, and the "dean of American Catholic Historians," Fr. John O'Malley presents his monumental course on the papacy. 

This masterpiece series covers the most fascinating history in the Western world.

Now you can trace the amazing history of the papacy, the oldest still-functioning institution of any kind in the Western world, in 36 erudite 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 the Catholic 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 resilience. You will be enthralled as you listen to Fr. O''Malley explains 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.

This course is part of the Learn25 collection and includes a free PDF study guide.

I think this was a fascinating book. I almost didn't get it because a reviewer noted that the audio was very poor. I did not find that to be the case - the audio was perfectly fine. The pace of the book is fast and I felt the author, although Catholic, was very factual in his assessments of the Popes and their impact for better or for worse. If you love history as I do I think you will find this to be a great read.

Can't hear the narrator. He needs to speak up.
