Benedict XVI's new memoir, a lengthy interview with German journalist Peter Seewald, is being translated into English and will be released this November.
Letzte Gespräche is being translated as Last Testament by Jacob Phillips, a lecturer in theology at St. Mary's University, Twickenham. It will be published by Bloomsbury.
The work is the fruit of several interviews conducted by Seewald a few months after Benedict resigned from the papacy.
It touches on recent events such as the reform of the Roman Curia, his abdication, and Pope Francis, as well as serving as an overview of his life, from his childhood to his time as Bishop of Rome.
