There are 187 medieval popes. Of them, only a handful are considered "important" by historians. That handful -- Gregory I, Gregory VII, Innocent III, Nicholas I, Clement VI, Urban II -- has been included in our resource. Some of the rest are quite interesting; most achieved little of note; still others reigned so briefly that very little is known about them.

It would take, quite literally, years to add them all to this resource. Therefore I recommend that if you require information on one of the more obscure popes who has yet to be included here, please look him up in The Catholic Encyclopedia or the nearest offline resource.
