David Marr’s revelatory Quarterly Essay on (then) PM-in-waiting Tony Abbott made national headlines. Now, he’s turned his merciless eye to Cardinal George Pell, leader of the Catholic Church in Australia and Abbott’s confessor – at a time when the church’s handling of sexual abuse is being closely investigated.
How did Pell rise to prominence? How has he handled abuse claims in the past? And how deep does his political influence go? Marr answers all that and more. Heather Ewart will chair the conversation.
