The Pope's legion : the multinational fighting force that defended the Vatican by Charles A Coulombe( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Arthurian grandeur the Papal Zouaves marched into Italy in the mid-nineteenth century, summoned by the Pope under siege as the Wars of the Risorgimento raged. Motivated by wanderlust, a sense of duty and the call of faith, some 20,000 Catholic men from around the world rallied to Vatican City to defend her gates against Sardinian marauders. Volunteers came from France, Belgium, Spain, Ireland, Austria, and many other countries, including the United States. The battles that ensued lasted over 10 years, among a shifting array of allies and enemies and are among history's most fascinating y et largely overlooked episodes. Napoleon, Pius IX, and Bismarck all make appearances in the story, but at the center were the Zouaves--steeped in a knightly code of honor, and unflinching in battle as any modern warrior--as the Church they vowed to defend to the death teetered at the brink of destruction

A History of the Popes illuminates the stunning biographies of the leaders of the Roman Catholic Church over the past 2000 years. You'll learn that many popes lived under the constant threat of violence, and were either killed or forced to flee Rome for their lives. Some brought enlightenment and hope to their flock, while others used the office to promote their own agendas and enrich their fortunes. -- from fly leaf page
The legacy of Pope Benedict XVI by Charles A Coulombe( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A concise account of one of the most epic developments in the modern Catholic church from prominent American Catholic historian, Charles A. Coulombe. Pope Benedict XVI's precedent-shattering announcement that he would renounce the Papacy - the first Pope to do so in 600 years - touched off a firestorm of speculation and commentary throughout the world's media and the blogosphere. But much of this ocean of opinion is just plain wrong, because of the complex nature of the Papacy and the Church. THE LEGACY OF POPE BENEDICT XVI gives you solid, inside information to make up your own mind on one of the most epic developments ever to shake the modern world - the radical change in course of the planet's largest religion. A renowned historian, journalist, and lecturer, Coulombe also sits on the board of the Queen of Angels Foundation and serves as a delegate for the International Monarchist League

A Catholic quest for the Holy Grail by Charles A Coulombe( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Holy Grail: it conjures images of a rich and fantastic world full of magnificent adventures and perilous quests by gallant knights. It whispers of strange mysteries and fabled conspiracies staged by Templars, Cathars, Nazis, and innumerable secret societies. Was it the Cup used by Christ at the Last Supper, or something else? Is there any truth to the wonders and marvels bards and poets associated with it? After years of being co-opted by pop cultures and New Agers, what significance can this fairy tale still hold for Catholics? Ah, but this is no fairy tale! As A Catholic Quest for the Holy Grail shows, not only does the Grail exist, its whereabouts are known today!" P. [4] of cover

Puritan's empire by Charles A Coulombe( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

History is the key to understanding men - whether as nations, families, or individuals. For Catholics, history has an even higher purpose beside. For them, history is the unfolding of God's Will in time, and the attempts of men either to conform themselves to or to resist that Will. But American Catholic historians have generally refrained from exploring their own national history with these principles, preferring instead to adopt the analysis of their non-Catholic colleagues, save when looking at purely Catholic topics (and sometimes not then). It is vital then, for Catholics, especially young Catholics, to have a good and proper understanding of their country's history. To exercise their patriotism, they must work for the conversion of the United States; to do this effectively, they must understand the forces and events which brought forth not only the religion of Americanism and the country itself, but also the sort of Catholicism which, in 300 years, failed so dismally to bring this conversion about. This book attempts to reinterpret the better known episodes of our history in accordance with the Faith, and to point up lesser-known details which will give factual proof of the truth of this reinterpretation
Shane Leslie's ghost book by Shane Leslie( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The object of this book is to collect instances of ghosts, apparitions and messages from the other twilight world which have come under Catholic cognizance or suggest Catholic interpretations. This small collection is intended to illustrate occasions between the Catholic Church and the ghostly. They are not necessarily spiritual and even less spiritualistic. Religion colours most of these stories, but some merely have occurred to Catholics or in Catholic surroundings. Whatever prohibitions mark Catholic life, the faithful are not forbidden to see ghosts or to believe in them!" -- Page [4] of cover
