Probably not legitimately a pope, Giovanni di Sabina ascended to the papal throne as the third Sylvester in 1045, when the Crescenti drove Benedict IX from Rome. After a month and a half, Benedict returned to Rome and ousted Sylvester. When Benedict sold his title to John Gratian, Sylvester returned to Sabina. The council at Sutri charged him with obtaining the see of Rome by simony but suspended his sentence. Sylvester died c. 1063.
