The epic movie event Pope Joan will be re-airing on ReelzChannel this month and again in March to celebrate National Women's History Month (NWHM). March is officially NWHM and what better way to celebrate than to honor a legendary woman whose alleged existence has been denied for over a thousand years.
Pope Joan is the story of a controversial figure of historical record who disguised herself as a man and rose to rule the Catholic Church in the 9th century as the first and only woman to sit on the throne of St. Peter. The movie, based on the international bestselling novel by Donna Woolfolk Cross, features the performances of John Goodman, Johanna Wokalek and David Wenham.
