Overview

** Active Table of Contents **

This edition of The History of the Popes comes complete with a Touch-or-Click Table of Contents.

This wonderful work provides a detailed history of each Catholic Pope.

At the end of the original History of the Popes, the author includes a list of Catholic Popes. This edition comes with a complete updated list.

The author of History of the Popes is the amazing John Farrow. Farrow was born in Sydney, Australia, the son of Lucy Villiers (née Savage), a dressmaker, and Joseph Farrow, a tailor's trimmer. Farrow began writing while working as a sailor in the 1920s. He moved to Hollywood to work in films as a marine technical advisor and stayed on as a screenwriter. He wrote for films between 1927 and 1959, and also directed between 1934 and 1959. Farrow was also a writer of short stories and plays (Laughter Ends), as well as non-fiction (Pageant of the Popes, and biographies of St Thomas More and Father Damien).

He was married to actress Maureen O'Sullivan from 12 September 1936 until his death. He fathered four daughters: actresses Mia, Prudence, Stephanie, Tisa; three sons: Michael Namien (1939–1958), Patrick Joseph (1942–2009), John Charles (born 1946). Maureen O'Sullivan was his second wife, after he converted to Catholicism and she received a papal dispensation to marry a divorcee.

He became an American citizen in 1947. In 1953 he was appointed an Honorary Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE). He was also appointed him a Knight Grand Cross of the Order of the Holy Sepulchre by Pope Pius XI.

He died from a heart attack in Beverly Hills, California at the age of 58 and was buried in the Holy Cross Cemetery, Culver City.
