Is the Pope Catholic? Well, not necessarily. Neither is he always a he, or even always alive. Meet licentious popes, incompetent popes, murderous, debauched and bewildered popes from the pages of history. True stories that are stranger than fiction; factual but entertaining. This is the papacy stripped of pomp and circumstance, a unique tour of the (un)Holy See.
