The Third Lateran Council opens under Pope Alexander III. Convened at the Lateran Palace, Rome, after the Peace of Venice, which reconciled the pope with Holy Roman Emperor Frederick I, it includes an envoy from the Orthodox Greeks.

The most important legislation will be the first canon, which confirms that the election of the pope will be in the hands of the cardinals alone, two thirds being necessary for election. This council will also enact harsh measures against the Waldenses and Albigensians.
