  1. Please correct the spelling in the Gregory XV quiz to Ludovisi, his family name, not Ludovici. Also note that he was the first pope educated by the Jesuits, in both the German College and Roman College. And probably the best pope of his era, given his judiciousness, piety, reform of the papal conclave, and the understanding he had that converts in India need not become European in name and dress to be true Christians (the de Nobili case).

    Many thanks.
