1566 The Lives of the Popes in the Middle Ages (Vol. IX) , by the Rev. Horace K. Mann, D.D. (read 6 May 1980) This volume tells of Innocent II, who had a very troubled reign. I have a lot of trouble with his election, and wonder if he would have been accepted as a true Pope if his anti-Pope had not been the grandson of a converted Jew. Innocent II was elected by a majority of eight Cardinals--actually by four Cardinals, just hours after Honorius II died. Innocent II died 24 Sept 1143 and was buried in the Lateran basilica. Celestine II was elected quickly, and died 8 Mar 1144 in Rome, and was also buried in the Lateran basilica. Lucius II died 15 Feb 1145 and was likewise buried in the Lateran basilica. Blessed Eugenius III died 8 July 1153 and was buried in St. Peter's. Anastasius IV died 3 Dec 1154 and was buried in the Lateran basilica. Hadrian IV was the first of the really lordly Popes, and the account of his life and reign is full of interest. He was buried at St Peter's. ( )
