Item # 674641

December 28, 1983

SUN-TIMES, Chicago, Dec. 28, 1983

* Pope John Paul II
* Mehmet Ali Agca
* Famous meeting photo

The front page has a heading that reads: "Pope pardons assailant after prison meeting" with photo. (see) First report coverage continues on page 14 with another related photo.
Complete with all 104 pages, tabloid size, small archival mend on page 2, very nice condition.

wikipedia notes: In 1983, John Paul II visited his would-be assassin. They had a private conversation, and emerged as friends. The pope stayed in touch with Ağca's family during the latter's incarceration, and in 2000 requested that he be pardoned. The request was granted.
