Concordat of Worms
Following efforts by Lamberto Scannabecchi (later Pope Honorius II) and the Diet of Würzburg (1121) in 1122, Pope Calixtus II and Holy Roman Emperor Henry V agreed to end the Investiture Controversy. By the terms of the agreement, the emperor guaranteed bribe-free election of bishops and abbots and renounced the right to invest them with ring and crosier, the symbols of their spiritual power. The pope granted Henry the right, in Germany, to be present at elections and to invest those elected with their lay rights.
