Pope Felix IV

Felix IV was pope from 526 to 530. He came from Samnium, the son of one Castorius. Following the death of Pope John I at the hands of the Ostrogoth King Theodoric the Great, the papal voters gave in to the King's demands and chose Cardinal Felix as Pope. Felix's favor in the eyes of the King caused him to push for greater benefits for the Church.
