Gregory XVI
Birth: Sep. 8, 1765
Belluno
Provincia di Belluno
Veneto, Italy
Death: Jun. 9, 1846

Roman Catholic Pope. Born Bartolomeo Alberto Capellari, he was pious, kind, loyal, and a fierce conservative, both in politics and theology, and he devoted his papacy to supporting legitimate governments and the repression of rebellion. He had a real interest in art and scholarship and not only encouraged research in the Roman Forum and the Catacombs but also founded the Etruscan and Egyptian museums in the Vatican, and the Christian museum in the Lateran. (bio by: MC)
