“If by the Roman Church you mean its head or pontiff, it is beyond question that he can err even in matters touching the faith. He does this when he **teaches heresy** by his own judgement or decretal. In truth, many Roman pontiffs were heretics. The last of them was Pope John XXII († 1334).” Pope Adrian VI. (Quaest. in IV Sent.; quoted in Viollet, Papal Infallibility and the Syllabus, 1908).
