109. John Paul I 1978 - 1978
De Medietate Lunae
Note: This pope who was unpopular with the curia, lasted only 34 days and died suddenly of unknown causes. His body was cremated within one day without an autopsy. This was and still is controversial, since popes are usually buried within the walls of the Vatican and are never cremated. The suddenness of this action has led to much speculation about a political conspiracy.
There are 3 quatrains found in Nostradamus prophecies that fit the circumstances surrounding the death of this pope.
