Artist's Description

It is documented that after Pope Leo came a Pope Joan.
John Anglicus, born in Mainz, was recorded as being pope for two years, seven months and four days. It is is claimed that John was in fact female.
Joan/John was taken to Athens by a lover of hers and made to conceal her identity by dressing in men’s clothes. Joan was an extremely bright scholar and rose quickly in society. In Rome she rose quickly amongst learnered masters and students and soon she was the choice of everyone for Pope.
