Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI was laid to rest on Jan. 5, 2023 at the Vatican, in a ceremony lead by his predecessor Pope Francis. The retired pontiff died on Dec. 31, 2022 in Vatican City at the age of 85. The priest, born Joseph Alois Ratzinger in Germany, made history when he stepped down from his position as pope in 2013, making him the first pope in 600 years to leave the role before dying.

His coffin was taken through St. Peter’s Square to the Vatican, where he was honored in a “simple” service at 10am local time.
