This doesn’t have anything to do with current research I’m doing or a letter I’m writing, but it just came to mind so I thought I’d mention it before it escaped my tiny attention span. When doing research on the papacy I ran across this old book, now out of copyright, and read it. Even though the author does have a bit of an axe to grind as an ex-Catholic priest (he became Orthodox), he was an extremely informed man it appears and I found it very informative and thorough on the subject of the development of the papacy. Don’t discount old books. Just because a book wasn’t written in the last ten years doesn’t mean it’s out of date or irrelevant. There’s a LOT in this book to consider.
