Hardly any pope was as pessimistic and at the same time as active as Gregory the Great (590-604). He saw the southern world - i.e. Italy - doomed by the storm of the Goths, but the Lombards, Franks and Spanish Visigoths turned to Roman Christianity. The shepherds - read: bishops - as Gregory imagined them were not politicians and humanists, but servants of the faithful people. He wrote his so-called Regula Pastoralis - Pastoral Rule - about this. It is now presented in a new german translation (with latin text) by the Trier patrologist Michael Fiedrowicz..
