Two Hundred Forty-seventh Pope: Benedict XIV - 2 comments

Benedict had the chair for eighteen years, most of them quiet. He got involved in controversy with the Chinese Catholics, in what appears to be a pretty shameless double standard. He agreed with his predecessors that the Chinese must use the Latin name for God (not the Chinese), and must not offer anything to ancestors. Venerating his European saintly ancestors, however, is still acceptable practice.
