Two of the longest reigning popes held the office during a period of enormous upheaval throughout the world. This film examines the papacies of Pope Pius IX, and Pope Leo XIII, both of whom had to accept new secular, liberal states in favor of a pluralist society. One denounced these secular values, while the other tried to lead the Church into the 20th century in a spirit of progress, realistic diplomacy, and conciliation?
