First documentary mentions


  • December 13th : Pope Calixt II dies in Rome and is buried in the Lateran basilica. Theobaldus Buccapecus was elected his successor on December 15th . He takes the name Celestine II . However, the election in the Church of St. Pancras is disrupted by armed supporters of the Roman city nobility Roberto Frangipani . Under his leadership, gunmen penetrate the church and disperse the voters. In opposition to Celestine II, the imperial-minded noble families elevated the Cardinal Bishop of Ostia , Lamberto Scannabecchi, to pope . However, in view of the irregularities in the election , he does not want to wear the tiara because he does not want to expose himself to the suspicion of presuming an office to which he is legally not entitled. In this way, Lamberto won over the supporters of Coelestin II, who renounced his papal dignity on December 16 , whereupon Lamberto was confirmed in another canonical election and assumed the name Honorius II . He is enthroned on December 21st .
