Summary
George Pell: leader of the Catholic Church in Australia, confessor to Tony Abbott. David Marr: the nation's leading biographer and investigative journalist. Cardinal George Pell is the most prominent Catholic leader in Australia at a time when the Church's handling of sexual abuse is being closely investigated. David Marr investigates the character and actions of George Pell: how does he wield his authority? How did he rise to prominence? How has he handled abuse claims in the past? What is the source of his authority? How deep does his political influence go? This will be a news-breaking and definitive portrait of Pell, at a time of maximum tension and scrutiny for both him and the church. Following up the explosive Political Animal, Marr's essay is certain to be one of the most discussed pieces of writing of the year
Summary
In March 2013, the nation's most powerful Catholic, Cardinal George Pell, was jailed for child sexual assault. In The Prince , David Marr investigates the man, his career and his ultimate fall. Marr reveals a cleric at ease with power and aggressive in asserting the prerogatives of the Vatican. He charts Pell's response - as a man, a priest, an archbishop and a prince of the church - to the scandal that has engulfed the Catholic world- the sexual abuse of children. This is the story of a cleric torn by the contest between his church and its victims, and slow to realise that the Catholic Church cannot, in the end, escape secular scrutiny. Behind it all was Pell's own terrible secret, which was uncovered and judged in a trial that convulsed the nation.
