5.3k views16 items
This is a good chronological list of Popes in order from Pope Gelasius II to Pope Innocent III, with lots of pictures. Pope Gregory VIII is famous from this period for starting the Third Crusade (the one that included Richard Lionheart). Serving from the Vatican as the head of the Roman Catholic Church and the Bishop of Rome, it is the Pope's duty to spread the gospel of Jesus throughout the Holy See and interpret God's divine will so Catholics may enter Heaven's Kingdom. Many Popes have achieved sainthood and are celebrated to this day.
