Who is the real Pius XII? In our time the media has painted a less than flattering portrait of the former pontiff--claiming that he failed to sufficiently denounce and combat the evils of Nazism. Sister Margherita Marchione, a leading Pius XII scholar and historian Ronald Rychlak set the record straight in this engaging series. Exploring the life, work and teachings of the 260th Pope, they present a man of astounding courage who, prior to the recent campaign of misinformation, was regarded as one of the brightest moral lights in the Second World War. 4 discs. 6 hrs.
