These attacks on Pius XII have been wrongheaded from the beginning. Almost noone knew Pacelli better than Paul VI, and he faced down all the attacks - most of which began with a German play by Rolf Hochhuth in 1963.

Peter Hebblethwaite was both an ex-Jesuit and a well-known liberal Catholic. His biography on Paul VI - Paul VI: The First Modern Pope - really does address this issue as well as anyone.

I haven't seen the Hebblethwaite book, but I'll have a look at it--it sounds encouraging.
