Hebblethwaite, Peter ; Hebblethwaite, Margaret. John XXIII pope of the century. London ; New York : Continuum, Edition: Abridged ed. / [rev. by Margaret Hebblethwaite], 2000. Abstract: Angelo Roncalli was elected Pope in 1958 and in four and a half years, through summoning the Second Vatican Council and putting in hand a major revision of the code of Canon Law, had transformed the Roman Catholic Church. Through his personality and teaching, and his initiatives with world leaders, he gave the papacy a new vision and set before the Catholic Church a new version of its mission to the world. Today many people throughout the world see Pope John XXIII as one of the twentieth-century's most loved and influential figures.

Hibbert, Christopher. The Borgias and their enemies : 1431-1519. Orlando : Harcourt, Inc., 2008. Abstract: The name Borgia is synonymous with the corruption, nepotism, and greed that were rife in Renaissance Italy. The powerful, voracious Rodrigo Borgia, better known to history as Pope Alexander VI, was the central figure of the dynasty. Two of his seven papal offspring also rose to power and fame--Lucrezia Borgia, his daughter, whose husband was famously murdered by her brother, and that brother, Cesare, who served as the model for Machiavelli's The Prince. Notorious for seizing power, wealth, land, and titles through bribery, marriage, and murder, the dynasty's dramatic rise from its Spanish roots to its occupation of the highest position in Renaissance society forms a gripping tale. Erudite, witty, and insightful, Hibbert removes the layers of myth around the Borgia family and creates a portrait alive with his sense of character and place.--From publisher description.

Tobin, Greg. Selecting the Pope : uncovering the mysteries of papal elections. New York : Barnes & Noble, 2003. Contents: pt. 1. History and development of papal elections -- pt. 2. The rules of the papal election -- pt. 3. Challenges awaiting the next pope -- Appendix A. The chronology of the popes -- Appendix B. Timeline of the history of papal elections -- Appendix C. The sacred college of cardinals -- Appendix D. Universi dominici gregis. Abstract: In this book author Greg Tobin offers a guide to the election of the new Pope. Every rule of this secretive process receives close scrutiny, as does the rich history behind the conclave and the key issues that will shape the future of the Catholic Church at a time when it is in crisis, in the U.S. and abroad. Topics discussed are why the election always concludes with the rising of white smoke; what powers the Cardinals hold during the vacancy of the holy See; and what changes Pope John Paul II made to the centuries-old procedures. This book examines some of the more than 200 holy men and scoundrels, geniuses and mediocrities who have held the position of Pope, and then looks forward to possible successors to Pope John Paul II. In addition, there's a day-by-day account of the balloting inside the Sistine Chapel.
