f HI TLER’S POPE
The Secret History of Pius XII
“By combining the painstaking research of
other scholars with his own new documentation, Cornwell makes a case that is very
difficult to refute.”— The New York Times Book
Review. “Cornwell, a Cambridge University
scholar and prominent British journalist, gives
us an account that is unsparing, though temperate. He has fresh sources, including the
records of Archbishop Pacelli during his long
tenure from 1917 to 1929 as Pope Pius XI's
ambassador to Germany; correspondence from
the British envoy to the Vatican; and key Jesuit
archives.”— The Philadelphia Inquirer. 8 pp. b/w
