Julius III - 'Pedophile Pope'


Pope Julius III appointed a teenage boy as his first cardinal.


Julius had picked up Innocenzo on the streets of Parma when Innocenzo was aged 15 and a beggar boy. [1].

The Venetian ambassador reported that Innocenzo slept with the pope. (Pope Julius III )

Julius allowed Innocenzo to become richer than the Medicis.

Reportedly, Julius made love with 'cardinals, pages and young men he fancied'. (Paul's Gay Stamps: "Out of The Closet" The Renaissance Julius III)

Julius loved banquets, theatre, hunting and the Villa Giulia where artwork depicts putti playing with one another's genitals. ( Image:Satirello che ne masturba un altro - Roma, Museo di Villa ...)

Julius gave his support to Michelangelo and to Palestrina.

Julius III and Innocenzo are buried in the del Monte chapel in the church of San Pietro in Montorio, Rome.

Other famous gay popes included, reportedly, Pope Benedict IX, Pope John XII, Pope Leo X, Pope Paul II, Pope Sixtus IV....

'Ephebophile' is the right term in this case (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ephebophilia)
Btw, most of these so called "Pedo Priests" are also more on the ephebophile side.
