Summary
The Conduct of Saints portrays a battleground on which power, God, sex, and the devil collide in the impoverished city of Rome during May and June of 1945. The German occupation of Rome has ended and it is under the jurisdiction of the victors: the American, British, and French Allied Control Commission. An American Vatican prelate and lawyer, Brendan Doherty, is involved in two crusades. Abhorring capital punishment, he means to avert the execution of the Nazi collaborator Pietro Koch. Also, as devil's advocate, Doherty intends to prove the hypocrisy of Alessandro Serenelli, the man who forty years before murdered Maria Goretti. Converted by a vision, Serenelli has spent his life, in prison and out, promoting the beatification of his victim. Doherty engages in his causes and quarrels with Rome's pre-dolce vita, postwar society--people both fictional and historical, like Alessandro Serenelli, Maria Goretti, Pietro Koch, Pope Pius XII, and film director Luchino Visconti--until he comes to a reckoning with himself and with the serene, unshakable saint-maker Serenelli
