About the Author

Mike Aquilina is the author or editor of more than thirty books on Catholic history, doctrine, and devotion. He has cohosted eight series for EWTN and is a frequent guest on Catholic radio. His publishing career spans almost three decades, and hundreds of his articles have appeared in periodicals in the United States and abroad. Mike lives in Bridgeville, Pennsylvania.


Good Pope, Bad Pope is a book that can embolden the faith of a believing Catholic, and perhaps break down the walls of those who find the papacy to be a stumbling block in their journey to the church. Aquilina doesn't shy away at all from the fact that many popes were far more sinner than they were saint."

-- The Catholic Telegraph
"Aquilina's abbreviated yet diverse selection--he admits your favorite may well be missing--provides a most readable account of the evolution of the papacy and all that it means for believers today."

-- Liguorian
"Church historian Mike Aquilina knows a lot about the popes. He agrees that the lives of saintly, intellectual, or courageous popes inspire us, but he says we can also learn from the lives of cowardly, greedy, or just plain evil popes.... Somehow, despite the terrible things they did, these popes never tried to change Church doctrine or morality to justify their personal actions, which seems downright miraculous."

-- Catholic Digest
This book is a great start for those wanting to learn more about the papacy, the men who have been pope, and how some popes have shaped the papacy and the Catholic Church, whether for good or bad.

--Krista Brown, Catholic Library World
