The Vatican Princess Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Vatican Princess by C W Gortner Book Summary:

Infamy is no accident. It is a poison in our blood. It is the price of being a Borgia. Glamorous and predatory, the Borgias became Italy's most ruthless and powerful family, electrifying and terrorizing their 15th-century Renaissance world. To this day, Lucrezia Borgia, the Pope's beautiful daughter, is known as one of history's most notorious villainesses, accused of incest and luring men to doom with her arsenal of poison. Was she the heartless seductress of legend? Or was she an unsuspecting pawn in a familial web, forced to choose between loyalty and her own survival? From her pampered childhood in the palaces of Rome to her ill-fated, scandalous marriages and complex relationship with her adored father and her brothers, this is the dramatic, untold story of a papal princess whose courage led her to overcome the fate imposed on her by her Borgia blood.

The Romanov Empress

The Vatican Princess Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Romanov Empress by C. W. Gortner Book Summary:

For readers of Philippa Gregory and Alison Weir comes a dramatic novel of the beloved Empress Maria, the Danish princess who became the mother of the last Russian tsar. “This epic tale is captivating and beautifully told.”—Lisa Wingate, New York Times bestselling author of Before We Were Yours Barely nineteen, Minnie knows that her station in life as a Danish princess is to leave her family and enter into a royal marriage—as her older sister Alix has done, moving to England to wed Queen Victoria’s eldest son. The winds of fortune bring Minnie to Russia, where she marries the Romanov heir, Alexander, and once he ascends the throne, becomes empress. When resistance to his reign strikes at the heart of her family and the tsar sets out to crush all who oppose him, Minnie—now called Maria—must tread a perilous path of compromise in a country she has come to love. Her husband’s death leaves their son Nicholas as the inexperienced ruler of a deeply divided and crumbling empire. Determined to guide him to reforms that will bring Russia into the modern age, Maria faces implacable opposition from Nicholas’s strong-willed wife, Alexandra, whose fervor has led her into a disturbing relationship with a mystic named Rasputin. As the unstoppable wave of revolution rises anew to engulf Russia, Maria will face her most dangerous challenge and her greatest heartache. From the opulent palaces of St. Petersburg and the intrigue-laced salons of the aristocracy to the World War I battlefields and the bloodied countryside occupied by the Bolsheviks, C. W. Gortner sweeps us into the anarchic fall of an empire and the complex, bold heart of the woman who tried to save it. Praise for The Romanov Empress “Timely . . . [Gortner’s] ability to weave what reads as a simple tale from such complex historical and familial storylines is impressive. . . . Maria’s life as a royal reads like a historical soap opera.”—USA Today “Gortner, an experienced hand at recreating the unique aura of a particular time and place, will deftly sweep historical-fictions fans into this glamorous, turbulent, and ultimately tragic chapter in history.”—Booklist (starred review) “Mesmerizing . . . This insightful first-person account of the downfall of the Romanov rule . . . is the powerful story of a mother trying to save her family and an aristocrat fighting to maintain rule in a country of rebellion.”—Publishers Weekly “A twist on the tragic story you’ve heard many times before.”—Bustle

The Vatican's Women

The Vatican Princess Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Vatican's Women by Paul Hofmann Book Summary:

Four hundred of the 3,800 people who permanently live or work in the State of Vatican City, the smallest sovereign and independent state on the globe, are women. They are nuns and members of the laity; some are housekeepers of churchmen; others are secretaries, translators, editors, lawyers, and middle-level officials of the papal administration. Expansive in scope and enlightening in detail, The Vatican's Women recalls women who wielded power in the Vatican, including St. Catherine of Siena, Queen Christina of Sweden, Mother Pascalina (Pope Pius XII's longtime housekeeper and confidante), and Mother Teresa. With an unflinching eye, Paul Hofmann examines the papacy's reaction to Catholic women's (and nuns') liberation, and women's struggles, especially today, to fortify their positions within the Church. The Vatican's Women is a thorough and revealing exploration that will herald a new level of insight and dialogue amongst feminists, theologians, and laypeople alike.

Sodoma

The Vatican Princess Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Sodoma by Frédéric MARTEL Book Summary:

" L'homosexualité dans le clergé est une question très sérieuse qui me préoccupe. " Pape François Le célibat des prêtres ; l'interdiction du préservatif par l'Église ; la culture du secret sur les affaires d'abus sexuels ; la démission du pape Benoît XVI ; la misogynie du clergé ; la fin des vocations sacerdotales ; la fronde contre le pape François : un même secret relie toutes ces questions. Ce secret a longtemps été indicible. Il porte un nom : Sodoma. La ville biblique de Sodome aurait été détruite par Dieu en raison de l'homosexualité de ses habitants. Or, aujourd'hui, c'est au Vatican que l'on trouve l'une des plus grandes communautés homosexuelles au monde. Pendant quatre années, Frédéric Martel a vécu en immersion à l'intérieur du Vatican et mené l'enquête sur le terrain dans une trentaine de pays. Il a interrogé des dizaines de cardinaux et rencontré des centaines d'évêques et de prêtres. Ce livre révèle la face cachée de l'Église : un système construit depuis les plus petits séminaires jusqu'au Vatican à la fois sur la double vie homosexuelle et sur l'homophobie la plus radicale. La schizophrénie de l'Église est insondable : plus un prélat est homophobe en public, plus il est probable qu'il soit homosexuel en privé. " Derrière la rigidité, il y a toujours quelque chose de caché ; dans de nombreux cas, une double vie. " En prononçant ces mots, le pape François nous a confié un secret que cette enquête vertigineuse révèle pour la première fois. Sodoma paraît simultanément dans vingt pays.
