Pope Adeodatus II (Deusdedit II) dies. Already a very old man when he was elected, Adeodatus II managed to reign for four years. Not much was accomplished, but he did reaffirm and defend the orthodox Christian belief that Christ had two wills (human and divine).

The belief that Christ had just one will is a heresy known as Monothelitism, and it has received strong support from political and religious leaders in Constantinople (including from Constantine I, patriarch of Constantinople).
