Abstract

This thesis reviews the available literature on Pius XII and his relationship with the Third Reich and the atrocities against the Jews during World War II. The types of literature explored in this study are standard texts; histories of the Church; biographies of Pius; available documents and memoirs; and studies of two special topics: The Ardeatine Massacre and the play, The Deputy. The purpose of this bibliographical review is to discern the various attitudes of authors and historians and reveal the diversity of their views stemming from their interpretation of documents and circumstance. Special attention is given the important play, The Deputy, not only as a literary masterpiece, but also as a catalyst in prompting the writing of other books.Ball State UniversityMuncie, IN 47306
