Pope John Paul II was born Karol Wojtyla on May 18, 1920 in Wadowice, Poland. He studied poetry and drama at Jagiellonian University. During World War II, he worked in a stone quarry and chemical factory while preparing for the priesthood. He received a Ph.D. from Rome's Angelicum Institute and a doctorate in theology at the Catholic University of Lublin. John Paul II was ordained in 1946 and became Auxiliary Bishop of Krakow in 1958. He was a university chaplain and taught ethics at Krakow and Lublin. In 1964, he became Archbishop of Krakow and in 1967, a Cardinal. On October 16, 1978, he was elected as the first non-Italian Pope since 1523. On May 13, 1981, Pope John Paul II was shot in an assassination attempt entering St. Peter's Square in the Vatican and has since recovered fully. During the 1980's and 90's, the Pope visited Africa, Asia, the Americas and in 1993, to the Baltic republics, which was the first Papal visit to countries of the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). He greatly influenced the restoring of democracy and religious freedom in Eastern Europe and reaffirmed the Roman Catholic teachings against homosexuality, abortion, "artificial" methods of reproduction, birth control and priest celibacy. He rejected the ordination of women and opposed direct political participation and office holding of priests. Pope John Paul II's extensive ethical and theological writings include "Fruitful and Responsible Love" and "Sign of Contradiction," which were both published in 1979. He has also published several encyclical letters, with the first being "Redemptor Hominis" (Redeemer of Man, 1979). Other encyclicals include his 11th, "Evangelium Vitae" (The Gospel of Life, 1995), which reiterates his opposition to several issues that included abortion, birth control and euthanasia; and his 12th "Ut Unum Sint" (That They May Be One, 1995), which addresses the issues that are dividing the Christian churches.
