Religious History

The elderly Honorius IV is officially consecrated pope. Although he had been elected in April, he was not a bishop at the time of his election and so could not become Bishop of Rome and Pope until consecrated a bishop.

A grandnephew of Honorius III, Pope Honorius IV is very popular with the people of Rome and is a staunch supporter of religious orders, especially Dominicans and Franciscans. He will also work unsuccessfully to achieve some degree of reunification between the Western and Eastern churches.
