  Pope Pius IV - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Pius IV, né Giovanni Angelo Medici (March 31, 1499 – December 9, 1565), pope from 1559 to 1565, was born of humble parentage in Milan, unrelated with the Medicis of Florence.
On the death of Paul IV he was elected pope on December 25, 1559, and installed on January 6, 1560.
Pius, however, aided by Moroni and Charles Borromeo, proved himself equal to the emergency, and by judicious management - and concession - brought the council to a termination satisfactory to the disputants and favourable to the pontifical authority.

 Pope Pius IV - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
After studying at Bologna and acquiring reputation as a jurist, he went in 1527 to Rome, and as the favourite of Pope Paul III was rapidly promoted to the governorship of several towns, the archbishopric of Ragusa, the vice-legateship of Bologna, and in April 1549 to the cardinalate.
His first public acts of importance were to grant a general pardon to the participators in the riot which had closed the previous pontificate, and to bring to trial the nephews of his predecessor, of whom Cardinal Carlo Caraffa was strangled, and the Duke Paliano, with his nearest connections, beheaded.
Great skill and caution were necessary to effect a settlement of the questions before it, inasmuch as the three principal nations taking part in it, though at issue with regard to their own special demands, were prepared to unite their forces against the demands of Rome.

 KOLBE'S GREATEST BOOKS: Pope Pius IV
The antipathy of Paul IV was rather to his advantage than otherwise; for in the reaction which followed the death of that morose pontiff all eyes finally settled on the man who in every respect was Paul's opposite.
Pius IV now devoted his undivided attention to the completion of the labours of the Council of Trent.
Pius had the satisfaction of seeing the close of the long-continued council and the triumph of the papacy over the antipapal tendencies which at times asserted themselves.

 Pope Pius IV
Pius IV, pope from 1559 to 1565, was born Giovanni Angelo Medici at Milan on the 31st of March 1499, of an obscure family, not related to the Medici of Florence (a claim to such relationship was advanced after Giovanni Angelo had attained to prominence).
But under Pope Pius V judgment was reversed, the memory of the Caraffa rehabilitated, and restitution made to the family.
Pius IV himself was not guiltless of nepotism; but the bestowment of the cardinalate and the archbishopric of Milan upon his nephew, the pure and upright Carlo Borromeo, redounded to the honor of his pontificate and the welfare of the church.

 Pope Pius V
Pius V, given name Michele Ghislieri, Roman Catholic Pope from 1566 to 1572, was born on the 17th of January 1504, in the Milanese.
In this office he was continued by Pope Pius IV, whom, however, he repelled by his excessive severity, and antagonized by his censoriousness and obstinacy.
The election of Pius to the papacy was the enthronement of the Inquisition: the utter extinction of heresy was his darling ambition, and the possession of power only intensified his passion.

 St. Pius V
Pius V did feel his office to be "an impediment to his eternal salvation", a heavy cross under which he feared he would fall".
Pius V was aware of his lack of political experience, and he harbored no ambitions that way.
As for the Missal, Pius V was aware that the apostolic faith ever believed by the Church everywhere (lex orandi, lex credendi) is expressed in the liturgy and that Luther's attempted demolition of true faith relies on his opposition to the Eucharistic sacrifice and the liturgy "that goes back to the Apostle Peter".

Thus the pontificate of Pius I. was a stormy one.
Nepotism in the Curia was radically abolished by Pius IV., who contrived to extract large sums of money from the States of the Church and from the ecclesiastical administration, and allotted considerable amounts to his adherents, though he never yielded to them special influence in State or Church.
The last years of Pius' pontificate are largely filled with this contest, he himself having given the challenge in that address of the spring of 1871 wherein he threatened Prussia with the "stone" of her destined shattering.

Pius nevertheless took prompt action to bring Cardinal Carlo Carafa, his brother, Giovanni, and Pope Paul IV's nephews to trial, which resulted in their controversial execution on March 6, 1561.
The council was dissolved on Dec. 4, 1563, and Pius confirmed its decrees and definitions in his bull Benedictus Deus (Jan. 26, 1564); on the following November 3, he published a summary of doctrine generally known as the Professio Fidei Tridentina ("Tridentine Profession of the Faith"), imposing it on the bishops as obligatory.
Pius did not long outlive the conclusion of the legal enactment of the Counter-Reformation, and his desire for a continued endeavour to reconvert the German Protestants died with him.
