Were there any popes declared saints?

In The Papacy: Erik Mojica voted up this answer.

Yes, quite a few!

If you’re inclined to believe that St Peter was the first Pope, then you have him. He’s followed by 79 others, including (from relatively recent times):

  • Pope Pius X
  • Pope John Paul II
  • Pope John XXIII

A full list is here:

Numbers backed up by:

You’ll also find a list of Servants of God, Venerables and Beatified in the Wikipedia article, who are not yet fully canonised but are part way through the process.
