This is a list of the Popes of the Roman Catholic Church. The list is from 1400 to the present. The Pope, as head of the Roman Catholic Church, is considered to be the legitimate representative of God's will on Earth and the earthly center of the Christian faith. While this is not recognized everywhere, it does hold sway for most of Western Europe and some isolated areas in the Middle East.
