Better known as Pope John Paul I. He reigned as pope for only 33 days (the shortest reign of a pope) from 26 August 1978 until he died suddenly on 28 September 1978. Therefore 1978 is known as the year of three popes.

He was the son of Giovanni Luciani (c. 1872–1952), a bricklayer, and Bortola Tancon (c. 1879–1948).

He was ordained to the Diaconate on 2 February 1935, and to the Priesthood on 7 July 1935 at the Church of San Pietro, Belluno, Kingdom of Italy. His episcopal consecration was on 27 December 1958 at St Peter's Basilica, Vatican City. He was elevated to the Cardinalate on 5 March 1973. [1]
