CWN Editor's Note: Pope Francis told participants in the 18th Convention of the Italian Association of Church History Professors that thanks to Father Giacomo Martina (1924-2012), a Jesuit historian at the Pontifical Gregorian University, he had come to love Church history and had read all the volumes of Ludwig von Pastor’s “History of the Popes.” (Pastor was a German Catholic historian who died in 1928.)
