Overview

The Pope we’re bringing you now is Pope Benedict XV who reigned from 1914-1922. There are so many facets to this Pope of the First World War, who served only seven years, the bulk of his term having to do directly with the war, or the aftermath of the war. Pope Benedict XV was ignored, ridiculed, and copied by the powers of Europe during the war, and after it was over. His Papal Peace Note of 1917 was rejected and denigrated by our own President Woodrow Wilson and then ultimately copied and made his own by Wilson in the Treaty of Versailles in 1919. He was elected Pope on September 3, 1914, just a month after World War I was declared. And he had only been a Cardinal for three months before his election to the Papacy. Talk about out of the frying pan into the fire!!
But we must begin at the beginning. He was born Giacomo della Chiesa in Pegli, a suburb of Genoa of the aristocracy of The House of Savoy in November 1854. At the time of his birth, Pegli was in the kingdom of Sardinia. It was part of the House of Savoy. This was after Napoleon’s rule in Italy had ended, but before the Unification of Italy under Victor Emmanuel II in 1861. So for all intents and purposes, he was part of the upper crust of the Piedmont section of Italy.

The authors may have intended this book to discuss only Benedict's Papacy after a brief discussion of his early life, but they never said so at the beginning. They zipped through his first 21 years in fewer pages than B&N offered as a sample, and included the usual childish sniping remarks about his physical appearance. Their "writing style" is on par with that of a C+ middle school student. What an insult to a man of God!

"Hey there," I mew softly. My gray-black pelt is sleek, and my bright yellowy green eyes glint. "You can join HurricaneClan at Hurricane Storm all results. You're not the only one with powers, so you won't feel left out!" I mew, and unfurl my dark wings so that she (I can't see the review Headlines section, sorry I can"t see your name!) can see. "Come to Hurricane Storm all results if you want to join. I promise, you won't regret it! I can be your adopted mother. I really want kits... but no tom will be my mate. Never mind. Hope to see you there!" I pound my wings and fly into the darkening sky. -Fangdusk, Warrior of HurricaneClan
