At the death of Pius XII, Bishop Angelo Roncalli was elected Pope on October 28, 1958, taking the name John XXIII. During his pontificate, which lasted less than five years, he promulgated two significant encyclicals, "Pacem in terris" and "Mater et Magistra." One of the most significant events of his papacy was the calling of the Second Vatican Council which launched an extensive renewal of the Church. Pope John XXIII died on the evening of June 3, 1963.
