Hubert Wolf and the ASV
In my earlier post on Wolf's book - Pope and Devil - I made mention of the review that spent most of the time analysing Bishop von Galen of Munster. I've had the opportunity to read Wolf's book. It is one of those "Wow" books that keep you riveted from beginning to end. Wolf's research is meticulous and his conclusions compelling. He has spent considerable time looking at the material available in the ASV and putting Pacelli's story together from his days in Germany through his time as Secretary of State.
