The revealing New York Times bestseller examines the reign of Pope Benedict, the papal conclave, and the history of one of the world's oldest and most mysterious institutions For more than twenty-­five years John Thavis held one of the most fascinating journalistic jobs in the world: reporting on the inner workings of the Vatican. His daily exposure to the power, politics, and personalities in the seat of Roman Catholicism gave him a unique, behind-­the-­scenes perspective on an institution that is far less monolithic and unified than it first appears.

John Thavis had vijfentwintig jaar een van de meest fascinerende banen ter wereld: hij was verslaggever in het hart van Vaticaanstad. Dagelijks kon hij de machtigste katholieke leiders en hun politiek op de voet volgen. Het gaf hem een unieke kijk achter de schermen van een fascinerende, in nevelen gehulde wereld. In Vaticaanstad vechten kardinalen privéoorlogen uit, dreigen schandalen het pauselijk gezag te ondermijnen en wordt eerbied voor het verleden continu blootgesteld aan het moderne leven. Thavis neemt de lezer mee vanaf de klokkentoren op de Sint Pieter tot in de basilieken diep onder de grond, van de politiek geladen pausverkiezing tot de seksschandalen wereldwijd en de controverses rondom anticonceptie _ en verder. Het scherpe en gevatte De Vaticaandagboeken is niet alleen geschreven voor katholieken (praktiserend of niet), het is een boek voor iedereen die geïnteresseerd is in internationale diplomatie en religie in een steeds verder geseculariseerde wereld.

The New York Times-­bestselling inside look at one of the world's most powerful and mysterious institutions For more than twenty-­five years, John Thavis held one of the most remarkable journalistic assignments in the world: reporting on the inner workings of the Vatican. In The Vatican Diaries, Thavis reveals Vatican City as a place struggling to define itself in the face of internal and external threats, where Curia cardinals fight private wars and sexual abuse scandals threaten to undermine papal authority. Thavis also takes readers through the politicking behind the election of Pope Francis and what we might expect from his papacy. The Vatican Diaries is a perceptive, compelling, and provocative account of this singular institution and will be of interest to anyone intrigued by the challenges faced by religion in an increasingly secularized world.
