The Shoes of the Fisherman is a novel by the Australian writer Morris West first published in 1963. The novel concerns the election of a Ukrainian pope, and is a dissection of Vatican politics. Many of the characteristics of Father Telemond were based on the controversial French Jesuit palaeontologist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin.

A Russian - and the youngest cardinal of all - is elected as the new pope. This is the story of Kiril Lakota, a cardinal who reluctantly steps out from behind the Iron Curtain to lead the Catholic Church and to grapple with the many issues facing the contemporary world. Raised Protestant by former Catholics, my view of religion has been a swirl of orthodoxy and free-thinking. With no regrets, I was hooked into the fiction of Morris West.

I first watched the movie, staring Anthony Quinn when it came out on television. I was impressed with the movie and the plot. The music score dramatic-I like even though I was listening a mono sound color TV. The production scenes of the vatican and St. Peter's and the sistine chapel were the first I had seen. I am a Lutheran and not a Roman Catholic but I was fascinated with the with the whole background. I grew during Pope John 23 and Pope Paul IV and Vatican 2. After watching the movie I picked up an old paperback and started reading it but stopped because the material was dense for me at a younger age. After the election Pope John Paul II, everybody felt that the Pope Kiri l was the story almost of the new non -Italian western Pope.

So Later, I decided to go and re-read the book on my Kindle after the election of Pope Francis. I finally read this book from cover to cover and I am glad I did. and I was amazed that even for non roman catholic how all topics Morris West wrote in 1962 are lime coming even now. After reading this book my assessment that Pope Kiril I is not not manifested in Pope John Paul II, but in the Present Pope Francis.

Morris West was and is a great and masterful story teller trying to resolve the spiritual and theological l issues that was layman try to grasp and deal with everyday. I went and bough is other trolley series
on this subject.
The book is built around the election of a Russian Pope and then describes his trials and tribulations. The book was written in the early 1960s and may have seemed bold at the time, but subsequent true-life Vatican history has been more intriguing, thus rendering this book kinda tame. So, I found myself reading it mainly for the description of how a pope goes about his days. There's not much of a plot here. There is a lot of Catholic theology and emotional stress, but it's not the kind of book that will keep you up till 3 in the morning (although I just finished it -- at 3 in the morning!) West is an excellent writer and hardly a page goes by when I am not impressed by his command of the language and his insight into papal thought. So, as I say, it was interesting, but annoyingly dated.
A fictional study of life during the Cold War from a different point of view, the Catholic Church. Everybody has read fiction and non-fiction about the Cold War, but nobody has looked at a group committed to peace and given a view from that point of view. It’s an interesting read and well done.
West is an authritative novelist on Vatican protocols and produces realistic portraits of the burdens and intrigues facing any pontiff
It has an interesting topic, but for me, not enough plot. A collection of essays, which could be good if you're in the mood for it. There's SOME plot, just not enough for me. Many interesting word choices. Keep your dictionary handy.
Outstanding and enlightening..absolutely amazing writer, working on the rest of the Trilogy. Finished THE CLOWNS OF GOD and am reading LAZARUS
I loved this book. I remember hearing about it in 1968 when it was first published and right before the Academy Awards program this year I saw the end of the movie on TCM. That's when I bought it. "The Shoes of the Fisherman" could have been written today. It is a great read and I can't wait to read the other two of the trilogy.
Good story. Well told. No longer topical but I lived it.
