EWTN Catholic Q&A
Pope Benedict XVI
Question from Rana on 04-19-2005:

Where can i get information about Benedict XV?

Answer by Colin B. Donovan, STL on 05-04-2005:

If you mean the current pope's predecessor, no public domain articles seem to be available. The 1913 Catholic Encyclopedia preceeded him. However, there is an article in the 1960s New Catholic Encyclopedia, as there would be in secular encyclopedias. They are copyrighted, so we cannot reproduce them here. However, I'll see if we can write one of our own for eventual display in our Benedict XVI mini-site.
