Add to wish list


Detailed Product Description
IN, 2006, 1st edition. 485 pp, photos. The prolific Bill Putnam wrote this well researched biography of Pope Pius XI, who served as Pope from 1922 to 1939.  He was an avid mountaineer in his spare time, reaching the summits of Monte Rosa, the Matterhorn, Mont Blanc and Presolana. 

The combination of a scholar-athlete pope would not be seen again until the pontificate of John Paul II. The end of his pontificate was dominated by speaking out against Hitler and Mussolini and defending the Catholic Church from Fascist intrusions into Catholic life and education. New thick paperback.
