Honorius II (born Lamberto Scannabecchi), cardinal of Ostie starting from 1117, pope of the December 21st 1124 with the February 13rd 1130. After five years and two months of pontificate, it will be buried in the Basilique Midsummer's Day of Lateran.
As papal legate, it took part activment in the Concordat of Worms (1122). It is during its pontificate that the Prémontrés were approved, and the Ordre of the Temple.
Lamberto was born in a simple family in the hamlet from Fiagnano in the village from Casalfiumanese close to Imola. At the 12th century, such a career is not impossible and shows qualities except standards. Its studies recommend it to the pope Pascal II which calls it at its sides in Rome. Lamberto is one of the cardinals who accompanied Gélase II in his exile by 1118-1119. Having made the demonstration of its opposition to the right of the Emperor to choose the bishop S of his empire (see the Quarrel of the Nominations), Lamberto became a natural choice to be sent as legate near Henry V (German emperor) in 1119 with the authority to obtain an agreement on the right of nomination. This opposition was balanced with the signature of the Legal settlement of Worms, the “ Pactum Calixtinum ” (which one can say that it is also Pactum Lamberti ) on September 23rd, 1123.
