Benedetto was born in 1235 in [[Anagni]], c. 50 kilometres southeast of [[Rome]]. He was the younger son of a minor noble family, the [[Caetani]], or ''Gaetani''. He took his first steps in the religious life when he was sent to the monastery of the Friars Minor in [[Velletri]], where he was put under the care of his uncle Fra Leonardo Patrasso.<ref>Tosti, p. 37, citing Teuli, ''History of Velletri'', Book 2, chapter 5.</ref> He became a [[Canon (priest)|canon]] of the cathedral in Anagni in his teens. In 1252, when his uncle Pietro Caetani became [[Bishop of Todi]], in [[Umbria]], Benedetto went with him and began his legal studies there. Benedetto never forgot his roots in [[Todi]], later describing the city as "the dwelling place of his early youth," the city which "nourished him while still of tender years," and as a place where he "held lasting memories." In 1260, Benedetto acquired a [[canonry]] in Todi, as well as the small nearby castle of [[Sismano]]. Later in life he repeatedly expressed his gratitude to Anagni, Todi, and his family.

In 1264, Benedetto became part of the [[Roman Curia]], where he served as secretary to [[Cardinal (Catholicism)|Cardinal]] Simon de Brion, the future [[Pope Martin IV]], on a mission to France. Similarly, he accompanied Cardinal Ottobuono Fieschi, the future [[Pope Adrian V]], to England in 1265–1268 to suppress a rebellion by a group of [[barons]] against King [[Henry III of England]]. Upon Benedetto's return from England, there is an eight-year period in which nothing is known about his life, after which Benedetto was sent to France to supervise the collection of a [[tithe]] in 1276 and then became a papal notary in the late 1270s. During this time, Benedetto accumulated seventeen [[benefices]] that he was permitted to keep when he was promoted, first to [[Cardinal (Catholicism)|cardinal deacon]] in 1281 and then ten years later to [[cardinal-priest]]. As cardinal, he often served as [[papal legate]] in diplomatic negotiations to [[France]], [[Naples]], [[Sicily]], and [[Aragon]].
