Additional notes

According to Lorenzo Cardella[2] Lucius II promoted also Nikolaus of Germany to the rank of cardinal-deacon or cardinal-priest of S. Lorenzo in Damaso, but no such cardinal appears among signatories of the papal bulls.[3] Cardella mentions also cardinal-deacon Guy of S. Maria in Portico[4] but he was created only by Eugene III and is identical with future Antipope Paschalis III.[5] Besides, it is possible that Lucius II promoted also cardinal-deacon Pietro of S. Maria in Via Lata,[6] but most probably he was created by Eugene III in March 1145.[7]


  1. Brixius, p. 51-53, mentions ten cardinals. One additional, Bernardo, Can.Reg., has been identified by Horn, p. 387 (Brixius and Zenker list him among the creations of Eugene III). Zenker, p. 224 lists only nine promotions, but she erroneously indicates that Guido Puella was created only by Eugene III; she has oversighted, that he had subscribed a bull of Lucius II on 31 January 1145: Jaffé, p. 717.

  3. Jaffé, pp. 7, 20–21, 717. Cardella may have confused him with cardinal Nicolaus, who was created cardinal-deacon by Innocent II in 1142 and promoted by Celestine II to cardinal-priest of S. Ciriaco in 1143; cf. Brixius, p. 45 no. 33; Zenker, p. 190. The title of S. Lorenzo in Damaso was occupied by Guido de Summa from 1143 until 1149 (Brixius, p. 137).
