Title: Liemar  
Author: World Heritage Encyclopedia
Language: English
Subject: Archbishopric of Bremen, Osterwieck, Gesta Hammaburgensis ecclesiae pontificum
Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


Liemar (*unknown – 16 May 1101*, in Bremen) was archbishop of Hamburg-Bremen from 1072 to 1101, and an important figure of the early Investiture Contest.

He was a supporter of Emperor Henry IV from 1073.[1] In 1074 the papal legates Gerald of Ostia and Hubert of Palestrina put pressure on him to hold a local synod; he resisted, was suspended, and by 1075 his views against papal interference with bishops had hardened.[2] With Benno II of Osnabrück he commissioned the anti-papal polemic of Wido of Osnabrück,[3] around 1085.
