1555 The History of the Popes (Volume XXXIV) From the German of the Late Ludwig, Freiherr von Pastor translated and edited by Dom Ernest Graf, O.S.B. (read 16 Mar 1980) This volume covers three Popes: Innocent XIII. Benedict XIII, and Clement XII. Innocent XIII was elected at a conclave that began March 31, 1721. There were 68 Cardinals, 24 of whom were created by Clement XI. Michelangelo Conti was elected 8 May, having been born at Poli on 13 May 1655. He was "very stout." He died 7 March 1724. The next conclave began 30 Mar 1724. Innocent XIII had created only three Cardinals. Peter Orsini was elected 28 May 1724, and took the name of Benedict XIII. He was a very religious person, and preferred to be involved in religious work, and thus let Cardinal Coscia do many mean things. Benedict XIII created 29 Cardinals. Benedict XIII died 21 Feb 1730. The next conclave opened 5 March. There were 67 Cardinals alive. On July 12 Lorenzo Corsini was elected. He became blind in 1732 and died 6 Feb 1740, almost 88. He ordered the building of the Trevi fountain. One should read these volumes in Rome, and go each day to see things one reads about. ( )
