A VIDEO LECTURE by Dr. William J. Neidinger

Originally produced as part of the "Vatican City" series by Dr. Neidinger in 2003, this program features new photos and diagrams not included in the 2003 version.

Pope, Vicar of Christ, Successor of St. Peter, Bishop of Rome, Patriarch of the West, and Monarch of Vatican City: these are the titles of the man most people simply know as the Pope.  But what do all these titles mean?  In this lecture we explore the intricacies of the government of the Catholic Church and Vatican City and trace the origins of the powers of the man we call “The Pope.”
