            The Two Popes: Official Tie-in to Major New Film Starring Sir Anthony Hopkins
              

            The Two Popes: Official Tie-in to Major New Film Starring Sir Anthony Hopkins (EPUB ebook)

            By McCarten, Anthony

            On 28 February 2013, a 600-year-old tradition was shattered: the conservative Pope Benedict XVI made a startling announcement. He would resign. Reeling from the news, the College of Cardinals rushed to Rome to congregate in the Sistine Chapel to pick his successor. Their unlikely... choice? Francis, the first non-European pope in 1,200 years, a one time tango club bouncer, a passionate football fan, a man with the common touch. From the prize-winning screenwriter of The Theory of Everything and Darkest Hour, The Pope is a fascinating, revealing and often funny tale of two very different men whose destinies converge with each other - they both live in the Vatican - and the wider world. How did these two men become two of the most powerful people on Earth? What's it like to be the Pope? What does the future hold for the Catholic Church and its 1 billion followers? The Pope is a dual biography that masterfully combines these two popes' lives into one gripping narrative. From Benedict and Francis' experiences of war in their homelands - when they were still Joseph and Jorge - and the sexual abuse scandal that continues to rock the Church to its foundations, to the intrigue and the occasional comedy of life in the Vatican, The Pope glitters with the darker and the lighter details of life inside one of the world's most opaque but significant institutions.

Elizabeth I (1533 -1603) was Queen of England and Ireland from 17 November 1558 until her death on 24 March 1603. She was the daughter of Henry VIII and his second wife Anne Boleyn. Also known as Gloriana or Good Queen Bess, Elizabeth was the last of the five monarchs of the House of Tudor. In 1558 upon the death of her half-sister Mary, Elizabeth acceded to the throne and initiated a reign by wise counsel. Throughout her rule, Elizabeth relied on a group of trusted advisers, led by William Cecil, the 1st Baron Burghley. She was a more moderate ruler than her predecessors had been, in accordance with her motto video et taceo ( I see but say nothing ). One of her first actions as queen was the establishment of an English Protestant church, but in the religious sphere, she was relatively tolerant and never engaged in systematic persecution. England's defeat of the Spanish Armada in 1588 credited Elizabeth with one of the greatest military victories in English history. Her reign is associated with a great flowering of English literature and theatre.
