Peter Eisner - The Pope's Last Crusade: How an American Jesuit Helped Pope Pius XI's Campaign to Stop Hitler

Saturday, April 27, 2013 at 6:00 pm

The Vatican in 1938 was a house deeply divided. In this dramatic chronicle, the award-winning author of The Freedom Line uses eyewitness reports and newly available documents from the Vatican archives to chart the struggle between Pope Pius XI—ill and struggling to complete an encyclical condemning Hitler—and a group of conservatives, including the future Pope Pius XII, equally adamant in their support of the fascists.
