Pope Hormisdas dies. He becomes known for his Libellus Hormisidae, a formula of faith which reaffirms the teaching of the Council of Calcedon (451) that Christ had both a Divine and a Human Nature, "hypostatically" united in one person.

This formula continued to be used for many years as a statement of orthodox doctrine and ended the Acacian Schism, an internal church dispute between East and West over the teachings known as Acacianism.

A married man, his son will become pope — Pope Silverius. Pope Hormisdas' formula re-affirmed the teachings
