Liverpool University Press, 2000 - History - 147 pages
This book provides an English version of the first ninety papal biographies in the Liber pontificalis, from St Peter down to 715 AD. In these lives, the reader will find the curious mixture of fact and legend which had come by the Ostrogothic period to be accepted as history by the Church in Rome, and also the subsequent records maintained through to the early eighth century while Rome was under Byzantine sovereignty. This new edition has been fully revised.
