Pope Leo II

Timeline of History

Religious History

Leo II is consecrated pope. His pontificate will be very short, and he won't very accomplish much aside from confirming the acts of the Sixth Ecumenical Council and condemning Pope Honorius I for his position in the Monothelite controversy.

The latter may be the most important historical aspect of Pope Leo II's reign. Honorius will not be accused of heresy; instead, he will simply be accused of being too permissive when it comes to dealing with the heresies of others.
