Executive summary: Roman Catholic Pope, 757-67
Paul I, Roman Catholic Pope from 757 to 767, succeeded his brother Stephen III on the 29th of May 757. His pontificate was chiefly remarkable for a close alliance with Pippin, king of the Franks, to whom he made a present of books highly significant of the intellectual poverty of the times; and for his unsuccessful endeavors to effect a reconciliation with the iconoclastic emperor of the East, Constantine Copronymus. He died on the 28th of June 767. His successor was Stephen IV.
