The Pope Who Would Be King: Pius IX And The Roman Revolution Of 1848
Of the many popular revolts that swept away the rulers of Europe in the revolutionary year of 1848, none was more dramatic than that which drove the pope from Rome. Popes had ruled Rome and a broad swath of Italy for a millennium, yet finally, it seemed, the demands for popular sovereignty and an end to theocracy were bringing about an end to the Papal States and perhaps, some thought, to the papacy itself. Based on research in Italian, Vatican, and French archives, Kertzer unravels the drama, complete with a colorful cast of characters, a story marked by treachery, tragedy, hypocrisy, and international power politics.

Hosted by the departments of Foreign Literature & Languages (FLL), History (HST), and Religious Studies (REL)
