    Abstract:
    This article compares the accounts of Pope Innocent IV’s death in Salimbene de Adam’s „Cronica“ and Matthew Paris’ „Chronica Majora“, focusing on the narrative strategies employed to ascribe a good or a bad death to the deceased through the depiction of his final hours. Each chronicler attributed different misdeeds to the pope, for which he was punished by his death. The results of this comparison suggest conclusions about the chroniclers and their works, the contemporary assessment of Pope Innocent IV, and descriptions of papal deaths in historiography.
