    Pope Joan. Written by Donna Woolfolk Cross Review by Cindy Vallar. Gifted with a thirst for knowledge and the ability to reason, Joan soon learns these traits are of little use to a young girl of the ninth century. Even so, her father begrudgingly allows a visiting religious scholar to tutor Joan with her : Donna Woolfolk Cross. Today, April 8 is the 14th anniversary of one of the most remarkable days in the history of the Church – the funeral of the beloved Pope John Paul II after an almost year papacy, the 3rd longest in the Catholic Church after St. Peter and Pope Pius IX.

    The History of Pope Joan and the Whores of Rome, printed in London in , during the reign of James II when the Catholic cause was enjoying royal support, sensibly stays on safer ground with its refutation of the Protestant point of view. The author, however, is unable to resist lapsing into the occasional polemical passage. A History of the Popes tells the story of the oldest living institution in the Western world—the papacy. From its origins in Saint Peter, Jesus' chief disciple, through Pope Benedict XVI today, the popes have been key players in virtually all of the great dramas of the western world in the last two thousand years. Acclaimed church historian John W. O'Malley's engaging narrative 5/5(2).
