Peter of Benevento
He was closely associated with Pope Innocent III, and produced in 1209/10 a collection of his decretals, the Compilatio tertia, as an active editor and competing with that of Bernard of Pavia.
He was sent in 1214 by Innocent to Provence, and there presided over the 1215 Council of Montpellier, directed against the Albigensians and empowering Simon de Montfort. From there he took James I of Aragon to Catalonia.
