    The Pope and Mussolini by David Kertzer won the Pulitzer Prize for Biography in 2014To be clear this book does not really fit cleanly into the biography genre it is history There are no backstories of Mussolini or Pope Pius XI as children Rather the story covers the years from 1922 to 1944 with the Pope and Mussolini and fascism as the core focusBeyond the good writing this was an enlightening read for me I had a sizable knowledge gap on

    My first impression of this book surprised me because I felt a glimmer of sympathy for Mussolini for having to deal with such an intractable man as Pius XI That sympathy uickly dissipated under the barrage of Mussolini's Facist policiesUnfortunately I never felt any sympathy for Pius XI at all He may have meant well but knowing that he could have helped with the downfall of Mussolini in the early days instead he lent h

    CAVEAT As I reread this piece it struck me that people might interpret it as anti Catholic It's certainly negative as far as Vatican City and its corrupt operations during the time period involved is concerned which is true to the book under review However like most American Catholics I see a huge gulf between my Catholic parish life and what happens in Rome so I didn't intend it as a screed against the church as a wh

UAnaliza źródeł niezbędnych do napisania niniejszej książki zajęła autorowi siedem lat Przejrzał dwadzieścia pięć tysięcy stron dokumentów Przebrnął przez niezliczone tomy odtajnionej korespondencji włoskich francuskich brytyjskich amerykańskich i niemieckich dyplomatów przeczytał dzienniki i pamiętniki I jak sam przyznał – opracowanie tych wszystkich materiałów i „rozwiązanie starych łamigłówek było zadaniem wprost porywającym?. The Pope and Mussolini is David Kertzer s fascinating account of the secret dealings between the Italian dictator and Pius XIThese were uncomfortable bedfellows Mussolini had shown no signs in his early career of wanting to revive the Catholic Church s fortunes in fact as he started off as a socialist the opposite was true His fascist lackeys had also spent much time beating up and terrorising hostile priestsPius XI also showed no great personal enthusiasm for Il Duce and his cult of personality but he was prepared to compromise himself and the Church in exchange for a boost to it
