Scholarly Popes?
#1
Who were the most scholarly popes?

Benedict XIV, who in 1757 removed books supporting heliocentrism from the Index, was, according to John S. Daly, a "scholar-pope." The Catholic Encyclopedia's author of the "Benedict XIV" entry says he has "the distinction of being perhaps the greatest scholar among the popes."
