Pope Leo II dies. His pontificate was very short, and he accomplished little aside from confirming the acts of the Sixth Ecumenical Council. The most important historical aspect of Leo II's reign as pope seems to have been his reaffirmation of the condemnation of Pope Honorius I for his position in the Monothelite controversy.

It is important to note that Honorius was not accused of heresy in this — instead, he was simply accused of being too permissive with regard to the heresies of others.
