Pope from 1740 until his death. His pontificate is considered one of the most significant of the modern age.

Pope Benedict XIV Lambertini, a man of great culture, loved to discuss art and poetry with kings such as Francis I, Maria Theresa of Austria, Louis XV and intellectuals such as Scipione Maffei, Antonio Genovesi, Girolamo Baruffaldi, Ludovico Muratori, but also with Protestant rulers (Frederick II) and with openly anticlerical men, such as Voltaire, with whom he had a special relationship.
The French philosopher, in fact, came to dedicate his Mahomet to the pope. Voltaire had sought protection from the Pope, and Benedict had responded favourably to him, giving "the apostolic blessing to his beloved son Voltaire".

Voltaire had, with great emotion, "very humbly kissed the sacred feet" of the Pope, whom he felt was the guarantor of balance in Europe, and an educated person who would not show excessive hostility towards a class of intellectuals, the Philosophes, of whom he felt he was the natural leader – or, as he liked to call himself, "the patriarch"."

Pope Benedict XIV, giving the church of St. Francis in Assisi the dignity of patriarchal basilica and papal chapel (Fidelis Dominus of March 25, 1754) prescribed that the papal throne reserved for the Bishop of Rome be erected in the upper and lower church. For this reason, the pope himself has published his own ceremony for this temple:
