Clement II

Clement II

Pope (Suidger, bishop of Bamberg), was placed in the papal see Dec. 25, 1046, after the Synod of Sutri, by the Emperor Henry III, in the room of Gregory VI, who abdicated. He crowned this emperor, and held in Jan. 1047, a synod at Rome for the suppression of simony. He died, as some think, by poison, Oct. 9,1047. He was the first of the German popes, and retained the diocese of Bamberg even during his pontificate. He put the city of Benevento under the interdict because it had refused to receive the Emperor Henry. — Neander, Ch. Hist. 3. 378; Gieseler, Ch. Hist. per. 3. div. 2, § 22; Hoefler, Teutsche Papste, 1 Abtieu. 233-288; Wetzer u. Welte, Kirchen-Lex. 2, 590.
