Paul VI: the last coronation...

(Vatican Radio ) Following the death of Blessed John XXIII on the 3rd of June 1963, the choice of his successor to the See of Peter fell on Cardinal Giovanni Battista Montini. Elected by the cardinals in conclave on the 21st of June of that same year, his was the last coronation of a Roman Pontiff in the history of the Catholic Church. It took place on the 30th June 1963.
Over the years Veronica Scarisbrick has collected the testimonies of some of those who lived through that era, many of whom personally knew Paul VI or anyway witnessed events connected to his pontificate, including the coronation itself.
In this programme Veronica Scarisbrick also brings you a selection of sound bites relating to Paul VI from our very own Vatican Radio archives…
