Pope Alexander I

Pope Alexander I was the 6th pontiff during the years 105-115

6th Pope (105-115)

Pope Alexander I was born to a noble Roman family, and although Pope Alexander I ruled during a tranquil time, he is known for his legendary battles with the Gnostic heretics.

Pope Alexander I introduced holy water and also the blessing of houses with water purified with salt to ward off evil spirits.

Pope Alexander I is said to have been beheaded on a road outside Rome named Via Nomentana.  Others claim that another man named Alexander was the martyr on that day.

Pope Alexander I's feast day is May 3.
