While many strange things happened in the Cathlic Church during the Middle Ages, no pope was ever married.

The Gay Dear Abby

Celibacy was imposed on Catholic priests only since the Middle Ages. Before that, married men were ordained to the priesthood, even to the papacy, but none of the 254 popes married after receiving the Holy Orders. St. Peter, the first pope, Peter Cephas, St. Hormisdas (married and widowed before ordination) father of Pope St. Silverius, Adrian II and many others (about 30) were among the married popes.

A clash of ideas is not a catastrophe, it is an opportunity. Only its constructive conclusions should be allowed to leave the academic framework.
