Under the caption "The Modern Papacy" the popes of the last century are included. A span of a hundred years (112 to be exact) is long enough to permit one to see and evaluate the main events, to delineate the chief movements and trends, and to point out the main currents of thought. We suffer in part from contemporaneousness, but the contemporary within the perspective of a century may not be in too distorted a focus.
