About the book:

For almost a year, veteran National Geographic photographer Jim Stanfield captured nearly every corner of the Vatican, both the worlds smallest country and the center of the Roman Catholic Church. Along with author Bart McDowell, he provides an insiders view into the history of this 108.7-acre enclave, from the first St. Peters, built in the fourth century, through the amazing reign of Pope John Paul II, and beyond. Rarely seen areas of the complex, such as the Popes personal quarters and the world-renowned libraries, and up-close views of the stunning and priceless art and architecture provide an unrivaled insiders look into this amazing nation.

In this revised trade paperback edition, Washington Post writer Howard Schneider brings the story of the Vatican up-to-date, including the death and funeral of Pope John Paul II and the selection and ordination of Pope Benedict XVI. Pope Benedict XVIs recent trip to the United States is also documented in poignant words and images.
