Book of Saints – Innocent V

Pope Blessed Innocent VArticle

(Saint) Pope (June 22) (13th century) Born at Tarentaise in Burgundy (A.D. 1245), he entered the Dominican Order, and acquired great fame as a theologian and as a preacher. After being Archbishop of Lyons and Cardinal of Ostia, he succeeded Pope Gregory XII in Saint Peter’s Chair. He died only five months later (A.D. 1276). Leo XIII authorised the continuance of the veneration traditionally paid to his memory as to that of a Saint, and ordered his name to be inserted in the Roman Martyrology.
