Death: Jul. 20, 1903, Vatican City

Pope. Gioacchino Vincenzo Raffaele Luigi was the sixth of the seven sons of Count Lodovico Pecci and his wife Anna Prosperi­Buzi. His election changed the course of the papacy, he was a modern man of his time. Leo XIII is most remembered for his 1891 encyclical Rerum Novarum, On the Condition of Labor. This encyclical has become universally recognized as the inaugural document of the tradition of Catholic social teaching and the benchmark against which all subsequent documents have been evaluated. (bio by: MC)
