Variant Name: Gregorius I, the Great, Saint, Pope; Gregory the Great; Saint Gregory; Pope Gregory


Historical Note: Pope Gregory I, also referred to as Saint Gregory I, or Gregory the Great (born c. 540, Rome; died March 12, 604), pope from 590 to 604, reformer and “founder” of the medieval papacy. His epithet, “the Great,” reflects his status as a writer as well as a ruler. As the fourth and final of the traditional Latin “Fathers of the Church,” Gregory was the first exponent of a truly medieval, sacramental spirituality.
