Leo’s successors Urban II, Paschal II and Calixtus II still held synods in France – particularly famous is Urban’s council of Clermont in 1095 which initiated the First Crusade82 – but more usual were Italian, especially Roman, councils when the popes were in control of the Eternal City.

Northern polemics apparently stressed the old rule that the pope could not be judged by anyone, especially not a layman like Emperor Henry III, who moreover had no rights with regard to the election of any cleric.
