Pope Saint Adrian III (also known as Hadrian III) was Pope from May 17 884 to September, 885. He was born at Rome. He died in September, 885, at San Cesario sul Panaro (Modena), on a journey to Worms, in modern Germany.

His brief pontificate came during troubled times. He died en route to a diet at Worms, Germany, after being summoned by the Frankish King Charles III, the Fat, to settle the succession to the empire and discuss the rising Saracen power. The motives for his veneration are practically unknown, but he was noted for having aided the Romans during a famine. His cult was confirmed in 1891, and his feast day is 8 July.

His death, and the subsequent removal of his body to, and its burial in the church of San Silvestro [Nonantola Abbey]near Modena is commemorated in the sculpted reliefs (c. 1122) framing the doorway of this church. His relics are found near the high altar here.
