A global history of the Catholic Church
The story of Roman Catholicism has never followed a singular path. In no time period has this been more true than over the last two centuries. Beginning with the French Revolution and concluding with current-day crises, John T. McGreevy chronicles the dramatic upheavals and internal divisions shaping the most multicultural, multilingual, and global institution on the planet.
Through individual stories and sweeping birds-eye views, Catholicism provides a mesmerizing assessment of the Church’s complex role in modern history: both shaper and follower of the politics of nation states. McGreevy also addresses the challenges faced by Pope Francis as he struggles to unite the over one billion members of the world’s largest religious community.
