Pope Gregory VI (Lua error in package.lua at line 80: module 'Module:Language/data/iana scripts' not found.; died 1048), born Johannes Gratianus, was an Italian priest of the Roman Catholic Church and the 149th Pope from 1 May 1045 until his abdication on 20 December 1046.[1]

Early life

Johannes Gratianus was born in Rome, but the date of his birth is not known.[2]


Gratianus became pope in 1045; and he took the name Gregory. There was a problem in the way he became pope.[2]

Gregory VI willingly resigned; and then he retired to a monastery.[3]

Hildebrand was the papal chaplain. This priest stayed with the former pope until his death in Cologne.[4]
