Two Hundredth Pope! Urban V - 0 comments

Two Hundred Popes! How about that? Only sixty-five more to go . . .

Urban V ruled from 1362 to 1370, and spent time working to move the see back to Italy. It didn't work out in the end; eventually he caved in to pressure from the Cardinals. He was apparantly a major patron of education, founding and assisting universities throughout Europe.
