Eusebius is elected pope. He will only remain pope until August when he dies in exile on Sicily.

Like his predecessor, Pope Marcellus I, Eusebius will try to adopt a conciliatory attitude towards the lapsed Christians who sought to return to the Church.

Not everyone is willing to be as forgiving as Pope Eusebius and Marcellus, which leads to a great deal of strife and violence among Christians. This annoys the Roman officials because order is what they value most. That's why Emperor Maxentius expels Eusebius from Rome, just as he had already done with Marcellus.
