Pope Innocent III was the most energetic and dynamic Pope of the Middle Ages. He applied his energies to reform not only in Canon Law but also in the life and morals of Ecclesiastics. He vied with secular princes with great success to maintain the independence of the Church and he also approved St. Francis and his order, which would have spiritual benefits extending far beyond Innocent's reign. This book covers the life of Pope Innocent in great detail, yet is easily readable and accessible to all. Covering his youth to his elevation to the Papacy and his labours therein, Pope Innocent III and His Times gives the picture of the man who managed the Papacy at its greatest point in the middle ages.
