The Catholic Church has been around for nearly 2000 years, so it's not surprising that some facts about the faith have been buried by history - or design. In an effort to bring us up to date, John Dollison has collected dozens of unusual facts that the church neglected to tell us - and some of the scandals and controversies that it preferred not to share. Readers will discover how many popes named "Innocent" actually lived up to the name, read papal bulls that call to mind another meaning of "bull", and catch a glimpse of some notable saviour sightings. There are portraits of medieval saints and 20th century sinners, fallen fathers and naughty nuns, inspired inventors and devils incarnate.
