Pope Adrian III (Latin: Adrianus III; died July 885), was Pope from 17 May 884 to his death in 885.[1] He was born at Rome. He died in July 885 at San Cesario sul Panaro (Modena) not long after embarking on a trip to Worms, in modern Germany. The purpose the journey was to attend an Imperial Diet after being summoned by the Frankish King Charles III, the Fat, to settle the succession to the Holy Roman Empire[2] and discuss the rising power of the Saracens.

His cult was confirmed in 1891, and his feast day is 8 July.[3]

His death and subsequent burial in the church of San Silvestro Nonantola Abbey near Modena[4] is commemorated in the sculpted reliefs (c. 1122) that frame the doorway of this church. His relics are found near the high altar here.
