Modern-day popes - like John Paul II - serve until death. But author Jon Sweeney tells the largely unknown story of a 13th century monk who, against his will, was elected pope and five months later nearly brought the papacy to its knees.

At the close of the tumultuous Middle Ages there lived a man who seemed destined from birth to save the world. His name was Peter Morrone, a monk and founder of a religious order. Depending on which story was told, Morrone was considered a reformer, an instigator, a prophet, a coward, a saint, and possibly a victim of murder. Sweeney weaves the tale of how a stroke of fate, practically overnight, transformed this humble servant of God into the most powerful man in the Catholic Church. Five months later, Pope Celestine V would be the only pope in history to abdicate the Chair of Peter. What lead him to make this decision and what happened afterward would be shrouded in mystery for centuries.

The Pope Who Quit pulls back the veil of secrecy on this dramatic time in history and showcases a story that involves deadly dealings, apocalyptic maneuverings and papal intrigue.
