    John Julius Norwich brings his historical talents to bear on the world's oldest continuous absolute monarchy, discussing the popes from St Peter to Benedict XVI. From the men (and maybe one woman) who have held this position he selects for special attention those who have been the most significant, politically, culturally and socially, for Rome and the world - such as Leo I, who tamed Attila the Hun, and John XXIII, whose reforms 'opened up the Church to the twentieth century'.
