- Three popes this morning: Sergius III (904-11), Anastasius III (911-13) and Lando (913-14). Sergius was a piece of work; his reign begins what Kelly calls the “pornocracy of the Holy See“. Moving right along, Anastasius seems to have been an inoffensive old gentleman, and nothing is known of Lando’s 6-month reign except that he endowed a cathedral in memory of his father. All three seem to have been creatures of Theophylact, senator, consul and treasurer of the Holy See.

- And that’s it for today. I’ve been swamped with a couple of urgent projects for work.
