Description: This volume collects and reproduces original bits of wisdom from all of the popes, enabling the reader to trace the evolution of papal views and opinions. Each chapter places an issue in its historical context, reveals the thought and experiences of the individual popes out of which their official pronouncements emerged, and explores the sometimes violent opposition that met papal statements and actions. The Church's position on human rights is traced through 2000 years up to its most complete expression in John XXIII's encyclical, "Pacem in Terris". There are plenty of surprises; the popes began speaking out against slavery in 1432; when sweat shops and child labor were the norm, Leo XIII condemned the exploitation of workers and defended the workers' right to unionize. And contrary to popular opinion, Pius XII was not only vocal in his denunciation of the Nazis, but he was also extremely active in rescuing Jews during World War II. This is a fascinating, relevant book that will give you immediate access to the wisdom and guidance of the popes, for both believers and the historically curious.
