  Pope St. Leo IX
Before Leo could do anything in the matter of the reform of the Church on which his heart was set, he had first to put down another attempt on the part of the ex-Pope Benedict IX to seize the papal throne.
At the usual paschal synod which Leo was in the habit of holding at Rome, the heresy of Berengarius of Tours was condemned-a condemnation repeated by the pope a few months later at Vercelli.
Again Leo crossed the Alps, but, thinking he was sure of success, Henry would not accept the terms proposed by the pope, with the result that his expedition against the Hungarians proved a failure.

At any rate, the Pope, already a prisoner of the Normans, and with a head full of troubles with his own emperor, the Church in France and England, missionaries being persecuted, and lords and kings putting their nogood sons and nephews in as abbots and bishops, was probably not a little upset over Cerularius' apology.
Among the things Pope Leo did while in prison, was to begin in earnest to acquire a speaking knowledge of Greek (his previous knowledge of Greek was New Testament Greek), the better to undertsand for himself what the Greeks were saying.

 Pope Leo IX
Leo IX, Roman Catholic Pope from 1049 to 1054, was a native of Upper Alsace, where he was born on the 21st of June 1002.
One of his first public acts was to hold the well-known Easter synod of 1049, at which celibacy of the clergy (down to the rank of subdeacon) was anew enjoined, and where he at least succeeded in making clear his own convictions against every kind of simony.
The greater part of the year that followed was occupied in one of those progresses through Italy, Germany and France which form a marked feature in Leo's pontificate.
