Pope Frankenstein

One of my favorite historical figures is Gerbert d'Aurillac, who may have been the most scientific pope until now. How much of his reputation for being a sorcerer comes from his interest in mathematics is still subject to debate. I also recommend Ars Magica, Judith Tarr's excellent novel about him.
