Papal election, 1285

The Papal election 1285, convened in Viterbo after the death of Pope Martin IV, elected Cardinal Giacomo Savelli, who took the name of Honorius IV. Because of the suspension of the Constitution Ubi periculum by Adrian V in 1276, this election was not a papal conclave.

The election of Pope Honorius IV

Fifteen cardinals assembled in the episcopal residence at Perugia on April 1, three days after the death of Martin IV. In the first scrutiny on the following day, they unanimously elected Cardinal Giacomo Savelli, archdeacon of the College. Savelli, although 75 years old, accepted his election and took the name of Honorius IV. He immediately arrived in Rome, where his election had been welcomed because he was native of the Eternal City.[1] On May 19 the new Pope was ordained to the priesthood in the Vatican Basilica. On the following day, he was consecrated bishop by Cardinal-Bishop of Ostia Latino Malabranca Orsini and solemnly crowned by Cardinal Goffredo da Alatri, who became new protodeacon of the Sacred College.

Notes

  1. ^ His predecessor Martin IV was French, and he was not able to visit Rome during his ponticate because of the enmity of Romans
