Ubaldo Caccianemici

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ubaldo Caccianemici († around 1170) was an Italian cardinal .

Nothing is known for certain about his parentage. According to the report by Alphonsus Ciacconius († 1599) he is said to have been a nephew of Lucius II from the Caccianemici family from Bologna , but this cannot be proven. He was probably a member of the Congregation of Canon Regulars of S. Frediano di Lucca.

On May 19, 1144, Pope Lucius II appointed him cardinal priest of S. Croce in Gerusalemme ; as such he appears for the first time on June 28, 1144. In 1147 he worked together with Cardinal Bishop Konrad von Sabina as papal legate in Farfa . In September 1159 he took part in the ambiguous papal election and took the side of Alexander III. (1159-1181). In 1162 he was an observer of Alexander III. in Saint-Jean-de-Losne . After 1158 he held the office of Archpriest of the Holy Roman Church. The date of his death is not known, the last testimony dates from September 12, 1170.
