Pope Innocent I

Pope Innocent I (Latin: Innocentius I; died 12 March 417) was Pope from 401 to his death in 417.According to his biographer in the Liber Pontificalis, Innocent was a native of Albano and the son of a man called Innocentius, but his contemporary Jerome referred to him as the son of the previous pope, Anastasius I, probably a unique case of a son succeeding his father in the papacy.Innocent I lost no opportunity in maintaining and extending the authority of the Roman apostolic See.
