The Popes of Baroque Rome

This is, for right now, a quick list of the Popes from 1585 to 1689, linked to biographies of them from the Catholic Encyclopedia. I have also put in a link to the online Grove Dictionary of Art. This site is mostly FYI and so will not be much elaborated.

The Popes are listed chronologically, beginning with the name under which they ruled, their birth names and birth places, and the dates of their rule.


Who the Pope Is

Origins, duties, titles, powers. From the Catholic Encyclopedia.
