Screen Priests is a fascinating historical look at films about Roman Catholic priests on screen. Something of a comprehensive look at the portrayal of priests on screen, the book includes detailed indexes exploring film titles, directors, and actors who have played priests, and there are special chapters on Irish priests, Australian priests, exorcism priests and even a chapter on films and abuse within the Catholic Church. Screen Priests explores the fascinating story of the changes in Catholicism and its institutions in the culture of the 20th and early 21 century as seen on screen. Greg spoke to Peter Malone about the book, the research that went into the book, and some of the famous actors who have played priests on screen.
