I found this book to very interesting. I am not Roman Catholic and this gave me a glimpse into the Papacy during the Middle Ages. The events in this book to place right before the Babylonian Captivity and the Great Schism. Indeed one clearly see the foundational cracks in the church which led to those events and ultimately to the Reformation. Even though the subject matter might sound a bit daunting or even boring (I have to admit that normally a book on the history of the Papacy wouldn't have jumped off the shelf at me) the writer wrote in a manner which made it interesting. I definitely recommend this book.

It is always fascinating to read a book on a subject, for which there is little source material, in order to see what the author makes of it. Mr. Sweeney uses Peter Morrone as an opportunity to include side-scenarios to paint a persuasive picture of the era, but in essence - and that is not his fault - there is too little to rely on.
