I'm going to have to pick up those books by David Yallop. Thanks for the link!

I'm half way through the first edition of "In God's Name;" which was given to me by all people my Italian aunt.

Here's some trivia to go with your feature - Big Al. Paul Marcinkus an American archbishop of the Catholic Church & President of the Vatican Bank from 1971 through 1989 was born in Cicero, Illinois when it was Al Capone's headquarters. Marcinkus nickname was "The Gorilla" and is a feature in the Gallop book.

A couple of links from the BBC re: "The Gorilla", apparently one of the most powerful men in the church.

Paul Marcinkus: Prelate with presence


The pic below is the new 2007 edition of "In God's Name" and according to Yallop contains new evidence. As expected the Vatican's comments "Fanciful and absurd."

I didn't now about "The Power & the Glory" book 'til I had a look on Yallop's website, so I will also try to pick it up. Sounds interesting.
