Revisit the rich and fascinating life of Pope John Paul II, whose 26-year reign coincided with -- and influenced -- many world events in the late 20th century. This comprehensive documentary details John Paul II's biography, including his early days in Poland; his rise within the Catholic Church; his historic 1978 papal inauguration, which made him the first non-Italian pope since the 1520s; and much more.
