Pick Your Time Traveling Pope

1635, and the Pope in Rome is Urban VIII, Maffeo Barberini. Not a bad Pope, but he did have that small tiff with Galileo among other things. You are a Vice Lord of Time Travel Conspiracies for Earth's sector. What the heck, you decide, let's bring in the Scientific Revolution and the Enlightenment a century ahead of schedule and see what happens!

You decide to send back a replacement Pope. He (or she!) will integrate seamlessly, due to your time lord powers. So what will it be? Politician, pop-star, and cultural mover-and-shaker--who would you send back to take the place of Barberini? And, in a paragraph or so, tell us why.
