A user-friendly guide
The popes are listed alphabetically according to their papal names (Pius, John Paul, Alexander) and entries also give their family names (Borgia, Wojtyla, Ratzinger). There is as well a chronology of the popes so they can be followed in historical order. Italics are used in the case of antipopes, and dates marked with an asterisk indicate an abdication. The Dictionary also comes with a useful glossary.
