Pope Victor I

Pope Victor I    14th Roman Pontiff from 189 to199

14th Pope (189-199)

Pope Victor I was the first African pope and was born at a time when Africa was under Roman control.

Pope Victor I established the prestige of the papacy and was instrumental in establishing the celebration of Easter on a Sunday and called the first Roman synod for this purpose. 

Pope Victor I upheld the divinity of Christ - that Christ was supernatural - and the triumph of good over evil.

Pope Victor I was the first pope to celebrate Mass in Rome in Latin instead of in Greek which was the language used at that time throughout Catholicism to say Mass.

Pope Victor I died in 199, and he is thought to have died a martyr.
