Pope Saint Victor I was an African Bishop of Rome (controversially called "Pope") from 189 to 199 (the Vatican cites 186 or 189 to 197 or 201). Because Marcellinus (d. 304) is the first Bishop of Rome which sources show actually assumed the title of Pope, it's historically improper to bestow the title upon Victor I. Additionally, there are many Christians who take an affront to Peter being called the first Pope, because there is evidence he never assumed such a title. See Pope / Objections to the Papacy. "Papa" in Latin is "pope" but it wasn't until Marcellinus that it was assumed as a "Papal" title and sprang from the fact that Victor I's language was Latin.

Before his elevation to the Roman episcopacy, a difference in dating the celebration of the Christian Passover/Easter between Rome and the bishops of Asia Minor had been tolerated by both the Roman and Easter Orthodox churches. The churches in Asia Minor celebrated it on the 14th of the Jewish month of Nisan, the Jewish Passover, regardless of what day it fell, as the Crucifixion had occurred on the Friday before Passover. The Latins called them Quartodecimans (see Quartodecimanism). Rome and the West celebrated Easter on the Sunday following the 14th of Nisan. Victor is remembered for the intolerance he displayed towards any lack of uniformity in the church by severing ties with bishops such as Polycrates of Ephesus who opposed his views on Easter.[1] He also broke with Theodotus of Byzantium for his beliefs about Christ.[2] Passover, also known as Pesach or Pesah (פסח pesaḥ), is a Jewish holiday (lasting seven days in Israel and among some liberal Diaspora Jews, and eight days among other Diaspora Jews) that commemorates the exodus and freedom of the Israelites from Egypt; it is also observed by...

Until Victor's time, Rome celebrated the Mass in Greek. Pope Victor changed the language to Latin, which was used in his native North Africa.

Pope Victor II - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (384 words)
In June 1055, Victor met the emperor at Florence and held a council, which reinforced Leo IX's condemnation of clerical marriage, simony, and the loss of the church's properties.
As guardian of Henry's infant son Henry IV and adviser of the empress Agnes, Henry's mother and regent, Victor now wielded enormous power, which he used to maintain peace throughout the empire and to strengthen the papacy against the aggressions of the barons.
Although there have been eight German popes, Victor II is one of only three popes from the territory of present-day Germany, the others being Clement II and the current Benedict XVI.
CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Pope St. Victor I (1431 words)
Pope Victor decided, therefore, to bring about unity in the observance of the Easter festival and to persuade the Quartodecimans to join in the general practice of the Church.
Victor, who acted throughout the entire matter as the head of Catholic Christendom, now called upon the bishops of the province of Asia to abandon their custom and to accept the universally prevailing practice of always celebrating Easter on Sunday.
The pope condemned this heresy and excluded Theodotus from the Church.
