Pope Clement, XII
Birth: Apr. 7, 1652
Florence
Provincia di Firenze
Toscana, Italy
Death: Feb. 6, 1740, Vatican City

Pope. Born Lorenzo Corsini, of an aristocrat family, Clement XII was a lawyer and financial manager under preceding pontiffs. Elected at the age of 78, Clement XII was often bedridden with gout and he became blind in 1732. He had significant problems in international relationships, often finding himself ignored by the Catholic powers of Europe. Clement XII is known for building the new facade of St. John Lateran and beginning the Trevi Fountain and the purchase of Cardinal Albani's collection of antiquities for the papal gallery. (bio by: MC)
