        Pope Saint Pius V 17 January 1504 1 May 1572 , born Antonio Ghislieri from 1518 called Michele Ghislieri, O.P , was Pope from 8 January 1566 to his death in 1572 He is venerated as a saint of the Roman Catholic Church He is chiefly notable for his role in the Council of Trent, the Counter Reformation, and the standardization of the Roman rite within the Latin Church Pius V declared Thomas Aquinas a Doctor of the Church.As a cardinal, Ghislieri gained a reputation for putting orthodoxy before personalities, prosecuting eight French bishops for heresy He also stood firm against nepotism, rebuking his predecessor Pope Pius IV to his face when he wanted to make a 13 year old member of his family a cardinal and subsidize a nephew from the papal treasury.By means of his papal bull of 1570, Regnans in Excelsis, Pius V excommunicated Elizabeth I of England for heresy and persecution of English Catholics during her reign He also arranged the formation of the Holy League, an alliance of Catholic states Although outnumbered, the Holy League famously defeated the Ottoman Empire, which had threatened to overrun Europe, at the Battle of Lepanto Pius V attributed the victory to the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary and instituted the feast of Our Lady of Victory.
