Summary of the Book 'A Cardinal Sin':

Pope Pius XII is a 1959 biography of Pope Pius XII by Cardinal Richard Cushing. Although it was Cushings only book it is of some literary value due to the fact that it presents alternative historiographical perspectives on the late pontiff who has been sharply criticized by other writers. It is an almost hagiographic biography written shortly after the death of bishop Pacelli.
