Summary This is the history of the papacy under three popes, Benedict XV (1914-58), Pius XI (1922-39), and Pius XII (1939-58), who faced the strains imposed on the worldwide Church by total war-two world wars and the Cold War. The totalitarian challenges of fascism, Nazism, and Communism led to unprecedented persecution in the history of Catholicism. Nevertheless, all three popes contributed significantly to the development of the modern papacy.
