Born a peasant, Felice Feretti matured into a severe and haughty prelate with piercing eyes, a long white beard and farsighted urban vision. He became an arrogant and imperious man, "related to the devil," some claimed. He also became, at age 65, one of history's most dynamic Popes. As Pope Sixtus V, he left an indelible stamp on Rome in a frenetic five-year reign from 1585-90, transforming his capital from a medieval hodgepodge into a Baroque showplace.
