2. St. Linus 67-76

Pope number two. The sequel. Maybe. It’s debated whether Linus or Clement I was the actual successor to Peter but most sources name the next Pope,before he was called the Pope,as Linus. Linus had a short term,but under his decree he created the first fifteen bishops and made it a rule that women wear veils or cover their heads during Mass. This was probably already a rule,but Linus is the guy that stamped it into the books. Veils fell out of favor in the 1970s,as it was declared not to be a matter of faith if a woman wore one or not.
