Cardinal George Pell

George Cardinal Pell, formerly Archbishop of Sydney (2001-2014), and of Melborne (1996-2001), Australia, was appointed in 2014 by Pope Francis as Prefect of the Secretariat for the Economy at the Vatican. He also served on Pope Francis' Council of Cardinals. After being publicly humiliated, ridiculed, and finally convicted for a crime he didn't commit, Cardinal Pell was sentenced to six years of imprisonment, of which he served 13 months, eight of which were spent in solitary confinement. In 2020 the Australian High Court voted 7-0 to overturn his conviction.

Cardinal Pell received a Licentiate of Sacred Theology from Urbaniana University, and his Ph.D. in Philosophy from Oxford University. His previous books include Test Everything, Issues of Faith and Morals and an authorized biography by Tess Livingston, George Pell: Defender of the Faith Down Under.
