Pope John Paul, Signed by his Official Photographer
Item Details
Description
Pope John Paul, Signed by his Official Photographer Arturo Mauro, Includes His Failed Assassin!

Three spectacular glossy 11.5" x 8" color photos.

1. Photograph of Pope John Paul shaking hands with his assassin, Mehmet Ali Agca, signed along edge by Arturo Mauro.

2. Close up photograph of Pope John Paul at a desk signing a document, signed by Arturo Mauro.

3. Pope John Paul wearing a purple robe and holding a large crucifix to his forehead, signed by Arturo Mauro.

A Turkish assassin, Mehmet Ali Agca, fired three bullets at Pope John Paul II in St. Peter's Square in Vatican City on May 13, 1981. One bullet bounced off the Pope's index finger and entered his abdomen. Another shaved his right elbow. Later, John Paul would say he survived only through the divine intervention of the Virgin Mary.

On May 17, 1981, just four days after the assassination attempt, the Pope publicly forgave Agca -- stating he'd forgiven him while in the ambulance during transport to the Gemelli Hospital -- and in 1983 visited Agca as he served a 19-year prison sentence. During that visit John Paul held Agca's hand and forgave his would-be assassin face-to-face.

This item comes with a Certificate from John Reznikoff, a premier authenticator for both major 3rd party authentication services, PSA and JSA (James Spence Authentications), as well as numerous auction houses.
