From resignations to drownings and beheadings, the papacy is full of unusual and surprising moments.
Saint Peter (32-67 AD) -- According to Catholic beliefs, Peter was the first pope and the focus of Roman Emperor Nero's ire. Nero sent an order for Peter's arrest, and although Peter escaped, it is said a vision of Jesus inspired him to return to Rome and accept his martyrdom. He was ultimately crucified.
