Biographical History

Clement VI (1291-1352) was pope of the Catholic Church from 1342 to 1352.

Pope Clement VI, originally named Pierre Roger, was born in 1291 in Correze, France. As a boy he entered the Benedictine Order. He was made cardinal-priest of Santi Nereo e Achilleo and administrator of the bishopric of Avignon by Benedict XII in 1338. In 1342 he was elected as Pope. Clement VI issued the bull Unigenitus Dei filius on 27 January 1343 to justify the power of the pope and the use of indulgences. He was pope during the black death and granted a remission of sins to all those who died of the plague. Clement VI died on December 6, 1352 in Avignon.
