The Cadaver Synod is the name commonly given to the posthumous ecclesiastical trial of Catholic Pope Formosus, held in the Basilica of St. John Lateran in Rome during January of 897.

Before the proceedings the body of Formosus was exhumed and, according to some sources, seated on a throne while his successor, Pope Stephen (VI) VII, read the charges against him (of which Formosus was found guilty) and conducted the trial.

Similar thing happened to Oliver Cromwell - after he died and his son failed utterly to continue his legacy he was dug up, hung in chains, decapitated and thrown into a pit. Apparently this was the best way of saying "Do not gently caress with the King" back then.
