Pope Urban is primarily recognized for converting lots of Christians to the faith and for ordering that liturgical vessels be made of silver, not glass. The schisms of the time continued; Pope Urban I remained true to his predecessors, standing firm in the Church’s opposition to their beliefs.
Little else is known about Pope Urban I. He is said to be buried near the tomb of Pope Callistus. The faithful invoke him against storms and lightening. Estimated dates of Pope Urban I’s papacy are from 222 – 230.
