    ... only three months and then he resigned under pressure and died soon after. He was found later to have a hole in his skull. The previous pope to the current one visited his tomb in L'Aquila and blessed him by placing his papal scarf around his neck. He, too, resigned 30 days later, the only two popes to have resigned.

They traded between each other in local produce and first proposed the idea of a united Europe. They moved on to become a sort of banking system offering credit.
