Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: From 1900 through 2000, the Catholic Church has had nine popes. Their terms of office have ranged from over 25 years (Leo XII) to slightly over one month (John Paul I). As the 21st century began, John Paul II was in his 22nd year as head of the church. During the century over 600 cardinals have helped to lead the church. This biographical reference work covers all nine popes and all 641 cardinals. The first section presents the popes in chronological order and provides full biographical information as date and place of birth and death, educational training and background for the priesthood, positions held within the church, and roles in church leadership and various conclaves. In the second section the cardinals are listed alphabetically and much the same biographical information is provided for them. (An appendix gives all the cardinals appointed by John Paul II in 2001.)
