Honorius II

Honorius II,

d. 1130, pope (1124–30), an Italian named Lamberto, b. Bologna; successor of Calixtus II. Before becoming pope he spent several years in Germany adjusting the quarrel over investiture between Holy Roman Emperor Henry V and the papacy. The matter was settled by the Concordat of Worms (1122). Honorius supported Lothair II in the disputed imperial election, and Lothair, after becoming emperor, conceded the Church's demands in the matter of episcopal elections. Honorius had an extended dispute with Henry I of England over the pope's right to send special legates to England. He was succeeded by Innocent II.
