Pope St. Paul VI
Alternatively praised and vilified, Pope, now Saint, Paul VI is perhaps one of the least understood pontiffs in modern history. Often caricatured by both liberals and conservatives, he will forever be known as the pope who “held the line” on Church teaching regarding contraception through his landmark encyclical Humane Vitae. Divided into four sections – his life, his papacy, his teachings, and his times and legacy – this pictorial biography of the Church’s newest saint is sure to be a treasured part of every Catholic library and home, and a fitting commemoration of both his canonization and the fiftieth anniversary of the promulgation of his most famous document.
Perhaps no author in the English-speaking Catholic world is better equipped to guide you through a visual tour of Paul VI’s life than Karl A. Schultz. He has lectured on Pope Saint Paul VI internationally, discussed him numerous times on EWTN, and published three prior books on him.
