A Chronological List of All Popes

by Stafannel b. Morris

If you’ve been wondering who was the first pope of the Catholic Church and how many popes have there been, we’ve got your back. We decided to list all Roman Catholic popes throughout the years. To make things more organized, we ordered the list chronologically. So, you will learn the name of each pope and you’ll be able to impress everyone with your indelible knowledge about the past leaders of the Catholic Church.
