    119M The Italian Unification – Papa Pio, Mama Mia!

    We are joined again by Marco Cappelli of the Storia D’Italia podcast to talk about one of the key events that impacted the Roman Papacy during the 19th century, the Risorgimento. The Risorgimento or Italian Unification pitted conservatives vs liberals vs centrists vs revolutionaries. It wasn’t entirely clear who would win in this situation, especially with the influence of two huge powers, Austria and France.

    119L The Italian Unification – Too Many Ideas Too Many Sicilies

    Today we are joined by Marco Cappelli of the Storia D’Italia Podcast, a history of Italy podcast in Italian, to discuss the Risorgimento or the Italian Unification that occurred during the 19th century. The Italian Unification process caused Pope Pius IX many headaches. Let’s find out how this process worked, along with what areas and people were involved. Look for more episodes from Marco who will be helping us to fill in this important piece of context for our story of the end of the Middle Ages of the Papacy.

    119k: Pius Early and Often

    The Roman Papacy and Catholic Church was ripe for reform. The election of Giovanni Maria Mastai-Ferretti as Pope Pius IX looked like the right person to get some reform done. The situation would quickly move outside of Pius’ control. Let’s find out how!

Staceyrcsm ,

Impressive!

The history of the Papacy (which must essentially include a history of the Catholic Church) is a massive undertaking and can get bogged down in doctrine and religion. The host does a masterful job of avoiding pitfalls like this while making the material interesting and accessible. Highly recommended.

Aelfred of Wessex ,

Great podcast, awful advertising network

Sorry, but serving me a local car dealership advertisement is the fastest way to get me to tune out. Bye!

GusGus129 ,

Great, informative. Seems well balanced.

Very good at keeping it academic not faith based. Really good at making it entertaining.
