Let me preface this entire post by saying, I am not Catholic. In fact, I have plenty of qualms with their theology. This does not mean that I do not understand their role in human history. Despite my qualms, they are a vital player in the faith community and must be recognized for their influence.
POPE: The Most Powerful Man in History explores the truth about the one world leader who is neither politician nor general – but commands the attention of both. For more than 2000 years, the head of the Roman Catholic Church has wielded unimaginable influence – shaping the world and our daily lives in surprising ways. Now, combining never-before-seen footage, exclusive interviews, and dramatic recreations, this upcoming six-part television series focuses on the men who have held this unique and complicated position, and reveals the unexpected true stories from the Vatican’s past. The series also delves into the important historical moments that forever changed the Catholic Church – from the foundations of the Reformation to the origins of a new religious order within Catholicism – the Jesuits. The series premieres on Sunday, March 11 on CNN.
