Overview

Which pope called himself 'Pope Handsome'? Which pope died in bed with a married woman? Which pope fell in love with his 'monkey-boy'? Which popes reigned during 'The Pornocracy'? These are the stories they don't talk about in church. Here are briefly told stories about dozens of popes who didn't practice what they preached. Some popesstarted wars and crusades, led inquisitions, and burned witches. Lots of popes kept mistresses in the papal palace and fathered children, including one pope who was himself the illegitimate son of another pope. One pope signed a pact with Hitler, another pope dug up a dead pope and mutilated his corpse. It turns out nobody's perfect, not even the popes. ILLUSTRATED VERSION
