Did Pope Palpatine do anything good at all? Seems like he'll be remembered for looking like a Sith Lord over anything else...and being a coverup artist.
Humanity wasn't scummier in the middle ages. It was a different culture, though, and the Vatican was a political actor, not the spiritual actor it primarily plays today. It was a culture of romance and chivalry and power. They didn't have cats on the internet to occupy their time like we are fortunate to have.
