I Became The Pope, Now What? novel is a popular light novel covering Fantasy, Adventure, and Action genres. Written by the Author MisterImmortal. 137 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.

      against his main enemy? we don't know, they haven't been revealed, only mentioned but the underlings which the mc cannot defeat outright have said the mc is not even close.

    Is the girl in max's visions his wife? Maybe she too re incarnated? if it is true, i don't know how to feel, i'm on the side that wants mc to move on from his previous life and get a complete new start But knowing the author's writing style, i wouldn't mind it either. edit: just read chap 137 and im not so sure anymore of the girl being his wife from his previous life, but you never know.

    Void keepers should just kill bloodlings instead of massacring and killing cities and villages.

      Probably yes, or else we wouldn't have so many of her references.

      I don't know, the last couple chapters kinda signified that he may have to move on from his earthly ties. Will she reincarnate probably not, but I feel someone exactly like how his memories reminds him of her may come around

    Fantastic read, author doesn't try to make the mc act like a genius but naturally comes off intelligent but sometimes heartless, the interactions with the main side characters are wholesome, scenes are intense at moments, the time skips so far have been reasonably done. The world building is fantastic as the author also has references to capture his world visually. The interactions with his mother are a bit depressing. Overall a good read that has clicked with me so far as the religious trope has been interesting
