Nuzzi, the author of “Vatican SpA,” a 2009 volume laying out shady dealings of the Vatican bank based on leaked documents, last weekend published “His Holiness,” which presented a trove of other documents including personal correspondence to and from the pope and his secretary, many of them painting Benedict’s No. 2, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, in a negative light.
