Sutri (near Rome), COUNCIL OF (Concilium Sufrinuma), was held in December, 1046, by Henry the Black, king of Germany. Gregory VI was invited to this council, and came; hoping to be recognized as sole pontiff; but, finding various difficulties and obstacles in the way, he renounced the papacy, stripped himself of his ornaments, and gave back the pastoral staff, after having held the papal chair about twenty months. After the council, Henry, accompanied by the prelates who had been present, went to Rome, and by common consent of the Romans and Germans, Suidger was elected pope, who took the name of Clement II, and was consecrated on Christmas day. See Mansi, Concil. 9:943; Baronius, Annal. A.D. 1046.
