Scholarly Popes?
#5
Pope Innocent III was, I believe, the first university trained pope.  He had degrees in both canon law and theology.

Pope Sylvester II has been called the "scientist pope" because of his interest in mathematics and natural philosophy.  He was so clever that he was accused by his enemies of being a sorcerer...  :grin:
