The definite integral, e, and the Pope... Trivia.

Heya, I'm trying to investigate why the function that we use as the definition of the natural log: _ x F(x) =  1/t dt = 1/x = e _ 1
Is known as the "Catholics are Devils and the Pope is the AntiChrist" function. It's got some sort of historical basis, and I desperatly need to find out what it is. Thank you for any help. Please email responses, and thanx again.
