Publisher's Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
 
In a chronicle that captures nearly two thousand years of inspiration and intrigue, John Julius Norwich recounts in riveting detail the histories of the most significant popes and what they meant politically, culturally, and socially to Rome and to the world. Norwich presents such popes as Innocent I, who in the fifth century successfully negotiated with Alaric the Goth, an invader civil authorities could not defeat; Leo I, who two decades later tamed (and perhaps paid off) Attila the Hun; the infamous "pornocracy"—the five libertines who were descendants or lovers of Marozia, debauched daughter of one of Rome’s most powerful families; Pope Paul III, "the greatest pontiff of the sixteenth century," who reinterpreted the Church’s teaching and discipline; John XXIII, who in five short years starting in 1958 instituted reforms that led to Vatican II; and Benedict XVI, who is coping with today’s global priest sex scandal. Epic and compelling, Absolute Monarchs is an enthralling history from "an enchanting and satisfying raconteur" (The Washington Post).

Author Bio

John Julius Norwich is one of Britain’s preeminent historians and travel writers. He has written the histories of Norman Sicily, Byzantium, Venice, and the Mediterranean. Other books have been on Shakespeare’s history plays, on music, and on architecture.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for John Julius Norwich
 
"As a historian, Lord Norwich knows what matters. As a writer, he has a taste for beauty, a love of language, and an enlivening wit. He contrives, as no English writer has done before, to sustain a continuous interest in that crowded history."—Hugh Trevor-Roper, author of The Last Days of Hitler and The Golden Age of Europe
 
"Norwich is an enchanting and satisfying raconteur."—The Washington Post
 
"He has put readers of this generation more in his debt than any other English writer."—The Sunday Times (London)
 
"Norwich is a historian of uncommon urbanity: scholarly and erudite but never pedantic. His style is as graceful and easy as it is knowledgeable."—Los Angeles Times
 
"[Norwich] is certainly the English language’s most passionate and dedicated chronicler of [Venice’s] extraordinary history."—The Seattle Times
