Saint Anacletus (3rd Pope, 76-92 AD, rating 7.5/10)
Very little is known about Saint Anacletus. He ordained 25 priests, and might have organized sections of Rome for each one. This might suggest to us that he was okay with certain elements of a having a church bureaucracy.
Speculative history suggests he might have been from a lower social order, and died a martyr.
