    schema:reviewBody ""Benedict XV (1914-22) is the least known of the twentieth-century Popes, yet one of the most important. Throughout the First World War, he sought both to prevent the spread of hostilities and to encourage the peace initiatives of other powers. During his pontificate he pursued peace in a broader sense, among nations, between social classes and within the Roman Catholic Church itself, after the painful divisions caused by the 'Modernist crisis' in the reign of his predecessor, Pius X. Benedict was also a great humanitarian Pope, engaging in vast relief operations for the victims of war, famine and other disasters, and he helped to found the Save the Children Fund." "This is the first biography of Pope Benedict XV to be published in English since 1959. John Pollard has made extensive use of archival sources, especially those of the Vatican, which have become accessible in the last few years."--Jacket." ;
