(Blessed) Pope (July 29) (11th century) The successor, after two short intermediate Pontificates, of Saint Gregory VII (A.D. 1087). As Pope he adopted as his own the policy of his sainted predecessor. He was the “Peacemaker” of the period, but is perhaps best known because of his zealous promoting of the First Crusade. He died A.D. 1099.
