Bartolomeo Sacchi, or Platina, was a 15th-century Italian humanist who is most remembered for his book ‘Vitae Pontificum,’ or ‘Lives of the Popes.’ ‘Lives’ was an important work dedicated to the papacy of important Catholic popes, but Platina wrote the work through the lens of Roman history with obvious themes of paganism. This book was the first systematic handbook on papal history and praises the punishment of heresy throughout the Catholic Church.
