Of the 363 Popes registered in the statist tics of the Holy See, only 49 are of foreign nationality; the other 224 are Italians, and include 111 Romans. Among the foreign Popes there have been 15 French, 8 Greek, 6 German, 6 Syrian, 3 Spanish, 3 African, 2 Dalmatian, 1 English, 3 Epirote, 1 An? tioohian, 1 Portuguese, 1 Toraoian, and 1 Flemish. The last-named, who reigned under the title of Adrian VI., is the latest in date, and his elevation goes back to the year 1522. So it is more than three centuries and a-half since a non-Italian Pope hag eat upon St, Peter's Throne.
