Coming Soon....

A lengthy post, or perhaps series of short(ish) posts, on the rite of Papal Coronation. This ceremony has not been utilized since Giovanni Battista Montini became Pope Paul VI, and even his coronation was modified due to its setting. The last genuine coronation came in 1958, with John XXIII. I will utilize texts of the rites, with historic allusions, as well as images and video footage from more recent coronations.
