A canon at the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore , he came to hold a number of important administrative positions, including that of Camerlengo. In , he became tutor to the young Frederick II. As pope, he worked to promote the Fifth Crusade , which had been planned under his predecessor. He also gave approval to the recently formed Dominican and Franciscan religious orders.
He was born in Rome as a son of Aimerico,  a member of the Roman Savelli family. Innocent III raised him to the rank of a cardinal priest in ,  by which he obtained the Titulus of Ss. Ioannis et Pauli. He was dismissed as Camerlengo of the Holy Roman Church in , but about the same time he assumed the post of Camerlengo of the Sacred College of Cardinals. Innocent III died on 16 July Two days later, seventeen cardinals present at his death assembled to elect a new pope.
The troubled state of affairs in Italy, the threatening attitude of the Tatars , and the fear of a schism induced the cardinals to agree to an election by compromise. He was consecrated at Perugia on 24 July and was crowned at Rome on 31 August. He took possession of the Lateran on 3 September The Roman people were greatly elated at the election, for Honorius III was himself a Roman and by his extreme kindness had endeared himself to the hearts of all.
Like his predecessor, Pope Innocent III, he set his mind on the achievement of two great goals: the recovery of the Holy Land in the Fifth Crusade and a spiritual reform of the entire Church. The Fifth Crusade was endorsed by the Lateran Council of , and Honorius started preparations for the crusade to begin in To procure the means necessary for this colossal undertaking, the Pope, and the cardinals were to contribute the tenth part of their income for three years.
All other ecclesiastics were to contribute the twentieth part. Though the money thus collected was considerable, it was by no means sufficient for a general crusade as planned by Honorius III. Far-reaching prospects seemed to open before him when Honorius crowned Peter II of Courtenay as Latin Emperor of Constantinople in April , but the new Emperor was captured on his eastward journey by the despot of Epirus , Theodore Komnenos Doukas , and died in confinement.
Most rulers of Europe were engaged in wars of their own and could not leave their countries for any length of time. They took Damietta and a few other places in Egypt , but a lack of unity among the Christians and rivalry between their leaders and the papal legate Pelagius resulted in failure. But the Treaty of San Germano in July permitted a further delay of two years. Frederick II now made serious preparations for the crusade. It was left to his successor, Pope Gregory IX , to insist upon their accomplishment.
Besides the liberation of the Holy Land, Honorius III felt bound to forward the repression of Cathar heresy in the south of France , the war for the faith in the Spanish peninsula, the planting of Christianity in the lands along the Baltic Sea , and the maintenance of the impossible Latin empire in Constantinople.
Of these projects, the rooting out of heresy lay nearest to Honorius III's heart. The most widely important event of this period was the siege and capture of Avignon. Albert of Jerusalem in Before that time the friars had only a temporary residence in Rome at the convent of San Sisto Vecchio , which Honorius had given to St. Dominic c. The studium conventuale at Santa Sabina was the forerunner of the Dominican studium generale at Santa Maria sopra Minerva. During his pontificate, many of the tertiary orders came into existence.
He also approved the religious congregation "Val des Ecoliers" Valley of scholars , which had been founded by four pious professors of theology at the University of Paris , France. Being a man of learning, Honorius insisted that the clergy receive a thorough education, especially in theology.
In the case of a certain Hugh whom the chapter of Chartres had elected bishop, he withheld his approbation because the bishop-elect did not possess sufficient knowledge, quum pateretur in litteratura defectum , as the Pope stated in a letter dated 8 January He even deprived another bishop of his office on account of illiteracy. Honorius bestowed various privileges upon the University of Paris and University of Bologna , the two greatest seats of learning during those times.
In order to facilitate the study of theology in dioceses that were distant from the great centers of learning, he ordered in the bull Super specula Domini that some talented young men should be sent to a recognized theological school to study theology with the purpose of teaching it afterwards in their dioceses. Honorius III acquired some fame as an author. The most important of his writings is the Liber censuum Romanae ecclesiae , which is the most valuable source for the medieval position of the Church in regard to property and also serves in part as a continuation of the Liber Pontificalis.
It comprises a list of the revenues of the Apostolic See , a record of donations received, privileges granted, and contracts made with cities and rulers.
The original manuscript of the Liber Censuum is still in existence Vaticanus latinus Honorius is also purported to be the author of a grimoire. The supposed author uses his faith in God and mixes with it the teachings of King Solomon; it contains invocations of demonic entities for every day of the week. He talked about the priest needing to fast for a certain amount of time and the sacrifice of animals in order to help with the binding of evil spirits.

Pope Honorius III
Grimoire of Honorius : Also called the Constitution of Honorius, this text may have been authored in the 16th century but was first published in Rome in It gained wide circulation during the 17th century. The book shows influences from the Lemegeton and claims to be based on the practical Kabbalah , but this connection is tenuous. Rather, it is the only grimoire to introduce significant Christian elements, which earned it the reputation of the blackest of black magic texts.
Grimoire of Honorius
Waite condemned its contents, while Eliphas Levi claimed that its influence brought about the assassination of the archbishop of Paris. What Rankine and Barron have produced for us is a comprehensive edition of the grimoire. The foundation text is a previously-unpublished manuscript, Wellcome MS , along with material from the editions dated to , , and , and a nineteenth-century German version. As such, this presents itself as the most comprehensive edition of the book ever published in any language. It does not include the original language texts or a full text of any book, but it does have a comprehensive chart allowing the reader to reconstruct the content list of each edition.
