Avignon and Its Papacy, 1309–1417. Popes, Institutions, and Society Critical Issues in World and International History
In “Pope Innocent III and his World,” acclaimed historian John Moore delves into the fascinating life and profound impact of one of the most powerful and influential popes in history. Drawing upon extensive research and a deep understanding of the medieval world, Moore presents a comprehensive and engaging account of the life and times of Pope Innocent III.
Born Lotario dei Conti di Segni in 1160, Innocent III ascended to the papal throne in 1198 at the age of 37. His pontificate would span an extraordinary eighteen years, during which he would leave an indelible mark on the Catholic Church and the world at large. Moore explores the early influences that shaped Innocent’s character and intellect, from his education in Rome to his tutelage under Pope Celestine III.
From the moment of his coronation, Innocent III displayed a remarkable blend of intelligence, ambition, and piety. Moore skillfully guides readers through.
