de David I Kertzer
Sobre o livro
The dramatic story of the nineteenth-century kidnapping of an Italian Jewish boy, subsequently raised as a Christian as the adoptive son of Pope Pius XI. Now filmed by Steven Spielberg, starring Mark Rylance as the Pope. David I Kertzer begins his fascinating investigation of the dramatic kidnapping, and shows how this now obscure saga would eventually contribute to the collapse of the Church's temporal power in Italy.
