Books about the Vatican


The Vatican Conclave elected Pope Benedict XVI (Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger of Germany) on the 3rd ballot. For more exciting fictional conclaves we recommend the following four books:
Dan Brown  Angels & Demons   Roberto Pazzi  Conclave
Greg Tobin  Conclave   Andrew M. Greeley  White Smoke

There are some great reads featuring fictional Popes:
Morris West The Shoes Of The Fisherman The Clowns Of God Lazarus
William D. Montalbano Basilica Daniel Silva The Confessor
