Innocent III (2)

Innocent III

(b). Under this name we also find an anti-pope in the Roman Church. He was a descendant of the Frangipani family, and is distinguished from the eminent pope of that name by the surname Landus. After the death of Hadrian he contested the succession of Alexander II, who succeeded in securing his person, and Innocent was imprisoned in the monastery Cava. Thus ended a schism which had lasted twenty years, under four successive rivals for the papal throne. (J. H. W.)
