Religious Figure
    (September 18, 1765-June 1, 1846)
    Birth name is Bartolomeo Alberto Cappellari
    Pope of the Roman Catholic Church (February 2, 1831-June 1, 1846)
    He employed spies to make sure people lived their lives strictly under the doctrines of the Catholic Church.
    His main supporters were reactionaries and ultra-conservatives within the church.
    As Pope, he banned railroads within in the Papal territories, calling them 'ways of the devil.'
    He had strong religious beliefs.
    Under his papacy, England made it legal to practice the Catholic faith.
    Without being asked, he issued a statement of forgiveness to the Anglican Church.
    By banning railways, he probably indirectly encouraged physical fitness.
