Description

In January 897, something unprecedented took place in Rome. 

Pope Formosa, the leader of the Catholic Church, was put on trial. 

What made this unprecedented wasn’t that the pope was on trial, although it was unprecedented. 

The remarkable thing was that Pope Formosa had died seven months earlier, and it was his exhumed corpse that was in the courtroom.

Learn more about the Cadaver Synod, perhaps the oddest trial in history, on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.
