I Became The Pope, Now What? novel is a popular light novel covering Action, Adventure, and Fantasy genres. Written by the Author MisterImmortal. 772 chapters have been translated and translations of other chapters are in progress.


Johnathan, an old man with an extraordinary past but an ordinary end, gets reincarnated in a dark fantasy world full of magic, darkness, and mysteries furled.

However, he committed a grave blunder by taking the fiction he had read as a reference. Reborn as a baby, he hoped to be deemed gifted by speaking early.

One thing led to another, and tragedy struck. The villagers declared him a demon-possessed and called the church. Johnathan, now known as Sylvester Maximilian, realized that he had messed up.

When the church's inquisitors came to judge him and burn him on a pyre. As a last resort and to welcome his soon to arrive second death, he started chanting holy hymns as his last breath.

Overwhelmed, they kneeled, thinking he was a messenger of Solis.

From there, the story of how Sylvester Maximilian rose through the ranks to sit at the top began.

But his life won't be ordinary, as he uses his cunning and the tag of 'God's favored' to his advantage. Fighting treachery, unearthing secret plots and world mysteries, facing the darkness around him and creating his place in history, engraving his name in the annals to be forever remembered as the—Immortal Pope, The Young.

[A/N: To not mislead you, the novel's name does not mean he instantly becomes the Pope from the start. The story will follow the life of MC. Though he will become the Pope at a pretty young age. 40% of the novel will be based around MC fighting to sit on the supreme throne.

If you enjoy world building and lore building, then you will like this story.]

***Main Tags: FANTASY, ADVENTURE, MAGIC, DARK, STRONG MC(Weak at the start because he's a baby. Not an instant OP though.), WHOLESOME, COMEDY, KINGDOM BUILDING. MENTALLY OLD MC, Politics, Backstabbing, World Building.***

[WARNING: MC will not go around saving everyone. Absolutely not if it puts him in danger. But if he can save someone using his status or position in the church, he will. He will kill innocent people if he has to. MC is not crazy, cynical, or unsociable. The world at some times may seem very DARK.]

The religion will be fake. I won't make it similar to those existing in our world not to trigger anyone. However, the Church terminologies and designations may feel identical as they are simple vocabulary words.

Again, everything you read in this novel is fictional and has no relation to our world.

I hope you enjoy my work. Stay safe and eat healthy bananas.

    This is what a novel should be. Read the synopsis and know 90% of the story.

    How long do you think it would take for story to end? I have read approximately 75% of the novel which has been released till me writing this comment. Do you think its going to end in 2-3 months or would it take it longer? Edit: please don't give any spoilers, I have remained untainted and I wish to remain that way.

    This novel is overrated before, it had a great start and I enjoyed it like it was the best thing I could have, but the plot gradually stopped being as good as before like many other novels and I called it boring. and received a lot of dislikes, after a year I tried to read it again but I'm afraid it's still bad for me

    When in the House of Solis will this update. I might lose my celibacy before Lord Solis graces me with this fine creation again. I must not commit such great sin.

    so... The novel got dropped? I remember the author saying once MC became pope that is about 40% of the way in the novel, now ppl saying it ended. weird. Once an author drops his novel to write another alot of readers will lose trust in them to finish that next novel. I probably won't be getting invested into it.
