Pope’s book to be released at the Vatican March 10

VATICAN CITY — Pope Benedict XVI’s new book, “Jesus of Nazareth. Part Two. Holy Week: From the Entrance into Jerusalem to the Resurrection,” will be launched with a Vatican press conference March 10, the Vatican press office announced today.

In an unusual move, the press office will open in the evening to host the 5 p.m. conference; a morning press conference would have conflicted with Pope Benedict’s annual Lenten meeting with the clergy of Rome.

The Vatican said the pope’s new tome on Jesus will be presented by Canadian Cardinal Marc Ouellet, prefect of the Congregation for Bishops, and Claudio Magris, an Italian scholar and essayist whose research has focused on German-language literature.

The pope’s first volume on Jesus of Nazareth looked at the period between his baptism and the Transfiguration and was published in 2007; a third volume, reportedly already being written, will look at Jesus’ childhood.
