CLEMENT IX, pope (1667-1669). Born Giulio Rospigliosi, Clement IX was elected pope in June 1667. Nothing remarkable occurred under his short administration beyond the temporary adjustment of the disputes between the Roman see and those prelates of the Gallican church who had refused to join in condemning the writings of Jansen. He died in December 1669.
