 Illuminating Lives: Pope John XXIII
In 1871, with the loss of the papal states to the modern nation of Italy and the restriction of Vatican sovereignty to its current borders, Pope Pius IX had proclaimed himself a "prisoner of the Vatican" and taken a defensive stance toward the modern world.
Pope Pius X (reigned 1903 - 1914) took this isolating trend further by undertaking a purge of "Modernists", especially biblical scholars who used modern textual criticism, driving many intellectuals from the Church.
Within a few months his beloved Radini-Tedeschi died, Pope Pius X died (to be succeeded by Benedict XV), and Italy declared war on Austria and Germany, entering World War I. Roncalli was called up to serve in the medical corps.
