Sicard, Bishop of Cremona (Italy) in the twelfth century, a member of one of the principal families of that city, d. 1215. After having pursued his studies in different cities, he was made subdeacon by Lucius III in 1182, after which he returned to his native city, and was ordained priest by Offredus, Bishop of Cremona, whose successor he became in 1185. During his lifetime he was entrusted with many important missions by the Holy gee, and enjoyed the confidence of the Emperor Frederick I. He was famed as an historian, canonist, and liturgiologist. His "Chronicon" containing a summary account of the history of the world, down to 1213, is valuable because of the light it throws on the Crusade of Frederick I. He also composed an important work on the liturgy, "Mitrale, seu de officiis ecclesiasticis summa", in nine books; and a "Summa Canonum", or handbook of canon law, based on the so-called "Decretum Gelasianum".
