Pontifex: Die Geschichte der Päpste (German Edition) by Volker Reinhardt

By Volker Reinhardt

Hüter einer ewigen Ordnung: So sehen sich die Päpste, deren establishment durch ihre lange Kontinuität fasziniert. Volker Reinhardt zeigt, dass diese Unveränderlichkeit eine Fiktion ist. Er erzählt höchst spannend, wie sich das Papsttum immer wieder neu erfunden hat, und vollbringt das Kunststück, dabei jedem Pontifikat in seinen theologischen, politischen und kulturellen Besonderheiten gerecht zu werden.
Volker Reinhardt legt nach dreißigjähriger Forschung zur Geschichte Roms und des Papsttums mit diesem Buch die seit Langem erste Gesamtgeschichte der Päpste aus der Feder eines Historikers vor. Er schildert, wie die Bischöfe von Rom in der Antike den Primat über alle anderen Bischöfe durchsetzten, im Mittelalter die Hoheit über Könige und Kaiser gewannen, als weltliche Herrscher den Kirchenstaat vergrößerten und dabei jahrhundertelang die Erhöhung der eigenen Familie im Blick hatten. Unzählige Kunstwerke zeugen bis heute von diesem vielfältigen Machtanspruch, und die meisten entstanden in Renaissance und Barock, als die Machtfülle schon bröckelte. Bis weit ins 20. Jahrhundert stemmten sich die Päpste gegen die Moderne und handelten dem Papsttum das Stigma des Ewiggestrigen ein. Aber der Ruf nach Reformern ist, wie die fulminante Darstellung zeigt, so alt wie das Papsttum.
