A History of the Popes tells the story of the oldest living institution in the Western world—the papacy. From its origins in Saint Peter, Jesus' chief disciple, through Pope Benedict XVI today, the popes have been key players in virtually all of the great dramas of the western world in the last two thousand years. Acclaimed church historian John W. O'Malley's engaging narrative examines the 265 individuals who have claimed to be Peter's successors. Rather than describe each pope one by one, the book focuses on the popes that shaped pivotal moments in both church and world history. The author does not shy away from controversies in the church, and includes legends like Pope Joan and a comprehensive list of popes and antipopes to help readers get a full picture of the papacy. This simultaneously reverent yet critical book will appeal to readers interested in both religion and history as it chronicles the saints and sinners who have led the Roman Catholic Church over the past 2000 years. The author draws from his popular audio CD lecture series on the topic, 2,000 Years of Papal History, available through Now You Know Media (

The Vita Martini or Life of Martin of Sulpicius Severus is one of the classic Latin hagiographies. Its hero, Martin, was one of the first monks in the Western Roman Empire, and was also one of the first monk-bishops. His life, as presented by Sulpicius, is a series of confrontations: with various Emperors and other leading figures in the Roman state, with members of the -Arian heresy, - Christians whose theology of the Trinity placed them at odds with exponents of -Nicene- Christianity, with the his lax and venal fellow-bishops in Gaul, and above all with the Devil, whose various shows of strength and guile Martin faces down. The Vita Martini is a brilliant combination of Christian and classical culture, providing allusions both to the Bible and to authors such as Virgil and Sallust throughout. In addition to its intrinsic literary and historical interest, it is also an ideal first example of a -real Latin- text, with a series of vivid, anecdotal episodes. This edition provides a Latin text with facing English translation, along with a commentary addressing matters of linguistic, literary, theological, and wider cultural interest, taking into account the revolution in the study of 'late antiquity' in the last fifty years.

Les evenements qui suivirent sont peu clairs. Il semble toutefois que Keroularios, apres le depart des legats, se soit decide a les attirer dans un guet-apens. L'empereur, a sa demande, leur ecrivit de revenir, mais ayant eu connaissance des projets de Keroularios, il voulut assister a l'entrevue du patriarche et des legats. Sur le refus de Keroularios, il ecrivit aux envoyes de Rome de continuer leur route. Keroularios se vengea de l'em 1. Cf. supra, p. iXi et suiv. 2. Brehier, op. cit., p. 10't. 3. Cf.

Constantin fut oblige d'ecrire au patriarche une lettre suppliante, ou il s'excusait de la conduite qu'il avait tenue, en rejetant toute la faute sur la fourberie d'Argyros, qui etait destine dans cette affaire a supporter les consequences des coleres de l'un et de l'autre parti . L'empereur promettait de faire bruler la bulle d'excommunication, promulguee contre le patriarche, et d'exercer des represailles contre Argyros dont le fils et le gendre etaient deja en prison En resume, la lutte entre le patriarche de Constantinople et le pape se termina par le triomphe complet du premier, triomphe que ne firent qu'augmenter les divisions intestines qui se produisirent alors dans l'Eglise de Rome....
