I Became The Pope, Now What? novel is a popular light novel covering Fantasy, Action, and Adventure genres. Written by the Author MisterImmortal. 739 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.

  • Letmedreaminpeaceyou 7

    Anyone knows roughly when this gonna end.Been stacking since 689 and wondering should I wait till the end or break my stack now

    Hey I stopped reading around chapter 500 in the desert arc. Does it get better? I had to take a break and am wondering if I should pick this back up again

    • cherrythefake 3

      It's gonna finish very soon. Might as well wait a little more and read it all in one go.

    I adored this novel until recently. I remember being an avid reader since chapter 200~ was out, but idk guys. It feels like the author is just sick of writing about this world. The recent maybe 50 chapters have barely been legible with some clear exceptions. Up until chapter 650, easily my favourite novel on this site. Despite my words, it’s still a decent enough ride, but there’s a reason the ranking went from top 30ish to here. Still a solid time, and I will definitely ride it out until the end, simply a disappointing final act. The flame of Solis seems to be sputtering in these past few chapters.

    • cherrythefake 3

      Yep. The author should have kept the story shorter. Maybe 500 chaps? Hopefully he does that with the next one.

  • BlueMountain 4

    A big fan of the author other works. Not so much with this one?

  • Defying_Demon_Flys 20

    Once upon a time this used to be so good

    • SkullCrusherGaming 3

      What happened? After reading the 561 chap I left it to stack more chapters. Minor spoiler pls is it not good anymore?

  • Desskman 25

    It's been a while since I started stacking about 5 months, why did this novels ranking drop so much! It was in the top 30 which it very much deserves. I just checked on webnovel even there the ranking dropped from top 20 to rank 88. Did the writing or story took a dip? From the comments that doesnt seem to be the case.
