For 2,000 years, Catholicism—the largest religion in the world and in the United States—has shaped global history on a scale unequaled by any other institution.
Triumph explores the long and rich history of the Church, from Biblical times and the early days of St. Peter—the first pope—to the twilight years of John Paul II. It is a sweeping drama of Roman legions, great crusades, epic battles, toppled empires, heroic saints, and enduring faith. Included, also, are the more controversial and challenging points of the Church's history: Dark Age skullduggery, the Inquisition, the Renaissance popes, the Reformation, the Church's refusal to accept sexual liberation, and contemporary allegations like those made in Hilter's Pope and Papal Sin.
A wide-ranging and copious history, full of inspiring pageantry and spirited polemic, Triumph ultimately provides an accessible and full history of the Catholic Church.
