Very Good Overview of 20th Century Popes
Leonard Wathen | Leonardtown, MD United States | 06/29/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)

Nonetheless, the clips are well chosen, and the narration provides very helpful commentery. Despite its modest production quality, I would recommend this product as a very good overview of modern Pontiffs."
