Mt. Leo IV.

Alimfuata Papa Sergio II akafuatwa na Papa Benedikto III.

Kutokana na uvamizi na uharibifu wa Roma uliofanywa na Waarabu, aliimarisha boma la mji na kulipanua hadi kandokando ya Vatikano[3][4], alikarabati makanisa kadhaa, yakiwemo Basilika la Mt. Petro na Basilika la Mt. Paulo, halafu alihamasisha falme za Kikristo kupambana nao[5].

Mwaka 849, meli za Kiislamu zilipokaribia pwani ya Italia ya Kati, alihamasisha jamhuri za kibahari za Napoli, Gaeta na Amalfi kuungana dhidi ya hatari hiyo mpya. Mapigano ya Ostia yalileta ushindi mkubwa[6][7].

Kanisa Katoliki linamheshimu kama mtakatifu.

Sikukuu yake ni tarehe 17 Julai[8].
