Executive summary: Roman Catholic Pope, 731-41
Gregory III, born in Syria, reigned as Roman Catholic Pope from 731 to 741. He condemned the iconoclasts at a council convened at Rome in November 731, and, like his predecessor Pope Gregory II, stimulated the missionary labors of St. Boniface, on whom he conferred the pallium. Towards the Lombards he took up an imprudent attitude, in support of which he in vain invoked the aid of the Frankish prince Charles Martel.
