Pope Innocent V (c. 1225 –
June 22, 1276), born Pierre de Tarentaise, was Popefrom January 21to June 22, 1276.
He was born around 1225 near
Moutiersin the Tarentaiseregion of southeastern France. In early life, he joined the Dominican Order, in which he acquired great fame as a preacher. He was the first member of that order to become pope. The only noteworthy feature of his brief and uneventful pontificate was the practical form assumed by his desire for reunion with the Eastern Church. He was proceeding to send legates to Michael VIII Palaeologus(1261-1282), the Eastern Roman Emperor, in connection with the recent decisions of the Second Council of Lyons, when he died at Rome. It is questionable whether anything would have come from this dialogue, largely because of the influence wielded on the pope by Charles of Anjou. By dictating the language used in Innocent's correspondence with Michael, Charles was able to insert terms and styles that would have seemed offensive to the emperor.
Pope Innocent V was the author of several works in philosophy, theology, and
canon law, including commentaries on the Pauline epistlesand on the " Sentences" of Peter Lombard, and is sometimes referred to as "famosissimus doctor".
