Born Karol Jósef Wojtyla in Wadowice, Poland, in 1920, John Paul II was elected Pope in 1978, becoming the first non-Italian to assume the Papacy since Adrian VI in 1522, and the first man of letters since Pius II in 1458. On 27 April, 2014, he became just the second pope to enter the sainthood in 300 years.

At turns stonecutter and boilermaker, poet and priest, professor of theology and member of an experimental theater troupe, John Paul II brought an eclectic personal history to Rome. Among the 117 countries he traveled to as Vicar of Christ was his native Poland, where his historic 1979 visit helped inspire the Solidarity movement and the fall of Communism.

A prolific author, a bold theologian and a saintly presence, John Paul II was hailed as “the great” by his successor, Benedict XVI, upon his death in 2005. He is arguably the most popular Pontiff of all time.
