A five-volume work covering the entire span of papal history down to the year 1799 (despite the title). Each volume contains an extensive bibliography and an index. American Catholic Historical Review praised this work for its dispassionate treatment of controversial issues, its scholarliness and clearly envisaged plan (XVIII [September, 1932] , p. 369). An English adaptation of the first edition appeared as A Short History of the Popes: Authorized Adaptation from the German. By Horace A. C. Frommelt (St. Louis, B. Herder Book Co., 1932. vi, S67p.).
