Innocent V , originally Pierre de Tarentaise OP , (* 1225 in today's Moûtiers in the Tarentaise , part of Savoy ; † June 22, 1276 in Rome ) was the second Pope of this year for a few months in the four- pope year 1276 .


From 1264 he was Provincial of the Dominican Order . In 1272 he was appointed Archbishop of Lyon and in 1273 Cardinal Bishop of Ostia . He was also a professor at the Sorbonne in Paris . As a collaborator with Thomas Aquinas and Albertus Magnus , he made a bigger name for himself in science than during his pontificate. During this time he received the title Doctor famosissimus .

Innocent V was elected Pope on January 21, 1276, just one day after the beginning of the conclave, which met for the first time according to the strict rules of his predecessor Gregory X. The cardinals were not allowed to leave the building before a new pope had been elected. Innocent was the first Dominican in the chair of Petri and only exercised his office for almost six months until his death on June 22, 1276. Although he tended towards neutrality, he quickly came under the influence of Charles I of Sicily , who resided in Rome as a Roman senator. Therefore he supported his policy towards Rudolf von Habsburg without complaint . He also tried in vain to deepen the church union with Byzantium .

Pope Innocent V was buried in San Giovanni in Laterano . His grave was lost with the great fire in 1308. He was on March 3, 1898 by Pope Leo XIII. beatified . His Catholic Memorial Day is the anniversary of his death on June 22nd.
