The book I have in my library is by the same name, Hitler’s Pope: The Secret History of Pius XII by John Cornwell. It talks about the collaboration between the office of the Papacy and Hitler in the extermination of the Jews during the Holocaust. One of the characteristics of the ten horns of the Roman Beast is the cooperation in some way, of the imperial power with the spiritual power which came to represent or be represented by the office of the Papacy. That Hitler and the Pope cooperated is an important factor in determining whether Hitler was in fact one of the ten horns.
But you will notice that this book is absent from the Bibliography. It is because the only other information I could discover about this topic at the time was that the book was full of lies (The Myth of Hitler’s Pope: Pope Pius XII And His Secret War Against Nazi Germany by David Dalin). And at the time I was not sure who was telling the truth. However, since that time multiple witnesses have come to my attention which seem to confirm that the pope at the time did in fact collaborate with Hitler. Here is a list I am working on adding to my library:
Constantine’s Sword: The Church and the Jews: A History by James Carroll
The Pilgrim: Pope Paul VI, The Council and The Church in a Time of Decision by Michael Serafian
God and the Fascists: The Vatican Alliance with Mussolini, Franco, Hitler, and Pavelic by Karlheinz Deschner
Hitler and the Catholic Church by Keelie Smith
The Popes Against the Jews: The Vatican’s Role in the Rise of Modern Anti-Semitism by David I. Kertzer
The Catholic Church and Nazi Germany by Guenter Lewy
“But if he will not hear, take with you one or two more, that ‘by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.’” Mat 18:16
To be fair, I also have on my list a book which has yet to be released:
I have not read this obviously. I will let you know as soon as I do.
SEPT. 14 UPDATE: This article was just released this week, with a link to a documentary National Geographic did about this very subject:
Pope vs. Hitler – National Geographic
What is the takeway? Well, the books and documentary were written to expressly debunk John Cornwall’s book, Hitler’s Pope. First Things is a Catholic publication. But National Geographic, presumably, is not. That there is so much still written about this after all this time, means that the question still persists of the Pope’s involvement. We do not want to bear false witness, so we might not ever be able to say who is right in a battle of he said / she said. But we see here even in the 20th century, the previously established pattern of connection and cooperation between Church and State with the end result in the fulfillment of the prophecy, no matter who intended what.
