An interesting chronological list of Popes in order from Pope Stephen IV to Pope Benedict IV, with lots of portraits. Pope Formosus, from this time, is unfortunately known as the Pope who was executed posthumously. That's even worse than it sounds. Years after he died, his body was dug up, dressed in Papal vestments and his corpse was put on trial by his political rivals. He was found guilty, and his body defiled. It gets worse... this whole process was done to his corpse.... twice. 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 will so Catholics may enter Heaven's Kingdom. Many Popes achieved sainthood and are exalted to this day.
