"This comprehensive reference book provides information on the deaths, funerals and burial places of each pope and antipope from St. Peter (Apostle) to John Paul I. Among some of the most interesting are the deaths of Innocent X, who was almost gnawed by rats because no one would bury him: Alexander VI, who was stuffed into an old carpet and pummeled into his coffin; and Formosus, whose corpse was physically put on trial. The Introduction presents a brief history of papal funerals and tombs, and also covers modern burials." "A unique feature of the book is its presentation of all papal epitaphs, in their original language and in English - many translated for the first time."--BOOK JACKET.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 293-297) and index.
