A biography of Pope John XXIII. Angelo Roncalli was elected Pope in 1958 and in four-and-a-half years transformed the Roman Catholic Church. He summoned the Second Vatican Council and put in hand a major revision of the Code of Canon Law. By his personality, teaching and initiatives with world leaders, he gave the papacy a new image and set before the Catholic Church a new version of its mission to the world. This is an abridged version of the original biography.
