Pope Anastasius, III

Pope. The 123rd occupant of the Holy See, elected September, 911, he was a Roman. His reign was marked with moderation, but beyond this history gives no details of his life, except that he was active in determining the ecclesiastical divisions of Germany. Anastasius III died some time in the summer of 913. He was buried in St. Peter's. His epitaph pithily remarks that the tomb holds the bones but could not contain the merits of this Pope who ruled the Church well.
