Information about Pope Clement III

Pope Clement III (1130 - 20 March 1191)

Pope Clement III (Latin: Clemens III), born Paulino (or Paolo) Scolari, reigned from 19 December 1187 to his death.

Shortly after his accession at the conclusion of the papal election of December 1187, Clement succeeded in allaying the conflict which had existed for half a century between the popes and the citizens of Rome, with an agreement by which the citizens were allowed to elect their magistrates, while the nomination of the governor of the city remained in the hands of the pope. On 31 May 1188 he concluded a treaty with the Romans which removed long standing difficulties, thus returning the papacy to Rome.
