David Kertzer with Alfred Fox Uhry: The Pope and Mussolini

Jan 28, 2014

From National Book Award finalist David I. Kertzer comes the gripping story of Pope Pius XI’s secret relations with Italian dictator Benito Mussolini. This groundbreaking work, based on seven years of research in the newly-opened Vatican archives and Fascist archives, including reports from Mussolini’s spies inside the highest levels of the Church, will forever change understanding of the Vatican’s role in the rise of Fascism in Europe. Pulitzer and Academy Award-winning playwright and screenwriter Alfred Fox Uhry (Driving Miss Daisy, The Last Night of Ballyhoo, Parade, Mystic Pizza) joins Kertzer in conversation about the overwhelming evidence that suggests Mussolini could not have established his dictatorship without Vatican support.
