    1. "A Binful of Garbage" was the review of this 1988 publication given by the British Jesuit, Philip Caraman. No wonder when the book's subtitle is "The Dark Side of the Papacy." I was also taken with the book's dedication: Humbly and with Penitence toAll the Victims of the Holocaust It would seem the author, Peter de Rosa, himself an ex-Jesuit,has done what my novice-master had warned us against in 1965:"It's a dirty bird that dirties its own nest."Whistleblowers have never been popular and for an [...]

    2. Mid 3. De Rosa sets out to chart the dark history of the papacy across the estimated 263 incumbents of the papal throne up to and including John Paul II. He attempts to clear those fallacies held true, such as the fact that St Peter never held the title of Bishop of Rome, only being invested with it centuries after he died. Imprisoned as a foreigner espousing a dangerous sect, Peter was finally brought out of confinement to be executed in the persecution of the Christians blamed by Nero for the [...]

    3. Peter de Rosa was a Jesuit theologian who wrote one of the most devastating critiques of Roman Catholicism I've ever read It's also a very compelling read -- not difficult to force through, except for the sense of disillusionment and outrage

    4. Part One of this books is, let's face it, the reason why most would buy it, the part most in tune with the subtitle. The sex, the corruption, the power grabs, the scandals, it's all there and de Rosa writes it with great flair, the knowledge of a former priest with a dash of British tabloid style. As we move on the titillation goes down and the analysis of theological issues goes up, and late in the book we get tremendous detail on the intrigues on contentions issues at the Second Vatican Counci [...]

    5. From Saint Peter to Pope John Paul II. This is a fairly complete, though quick history of all the popes from the saintly (Peter), the most exhumed (Formosus), to the most corrupt and sinful (the Borgia Alexander VI, Gregory VII; really too many to list here). Far too often it appears popes were elected for their hatred of women (or was it fear?), their arrogance and downright stupidity, rather than their beneficence and erudition. We have left the Dark Ages, so it is said, but the same cannot be [...]

    6. كتاب ممتع وشيق يسرد لك تاريخ الكنيسة الاسود منذ تأسيسها حتى العصر الحالي .يناقش قضايا عديدة مثل 1- بدعة عصمة الباباالخطيئة الاصلية الزواج والعزوبة صكوك الغفرانمحاكم التفتيش الحرق والتكفير والقتل . الى غيرها الكثر الكثير ما يلاحظ على الكتاب تهميشه او إقصائه جرائم الكنيسة ضد [...]

    7. i was looking for a book by Peter de Rosa that mentions how Pope Innocent VIII got blood from 3 ten-yr-old boys on his death bed, apparently this acct answered my que:news-medical/health/Hi

    8. really one of the best books I've read about the papacy,and that's including E.R. Chamberlain's "The Bad Popes" and Gary Willis's "Papal Sin." The most interesting stuff in the book is probably anecdotal, and spurious, but it's incredibly entertaining, and enlightening, nonetheless.
