Recommendation on Papal History Book



I’m looking for a good book on the history of the Popes. I’ve read Triumph and currently reading History of the Catholic Church by Hitchcock. These books are good but not as in depth as what I’m looking for. Any suggestions on a book on the popes? Or Catholic Church History in general?

Thank you


The Hitchcock is always my first recommend.

Chamberlin’s “The Bad Popes” is one I’ve read more than once.


Saint and dinner history of the pope is a good book
