Roman Catholic Pope. Born Tommaso Parentucelli. He was a man of sincere piety, simple and temperate in his habits, He was entirely free from the bane of nepotism, and exercised great care in the choice of cardinals. He was responsible for one of the brightest pages in the history of the popes, as he is generally credited with the creation of the Vatican Library, although Sixtus IV, better known as the pope who built the Sistine Chapel, was primarily responsible for its expansion in the early years.
