Secrets of the Vatican

On 28 February 2013, Pope Benedict XVI shocked the world by being the first pope to resign in 600 years. When the helicopter took him away he was leaving behind a bitterly divided Vatican and this FRONTLINE special explores the inside story of the events which undermined Benedict’s papacy.

It is a story of corruption and coverups, sexual scandal and abuse, of secrets and hypocrisy and a tale of leaked documents which exposed a bitter internal power struggle.

With Pope Benedict gone now Pope Francis must battle the forces which overwhelmed his predecessor and if he wants to change how the church operates he must take decisive action which can be risky when taking on the Vatican.

These are the secrets of the Vatican.
