Anastasius II

Anastasius II

Pope, a native of Rome, succeeded Gelasius I in 496. He endeavored to put an end to the schism then existing between the see of Constantinople and that of Rome about the question of precedence. Two letters written by him on the occasion to the Emperor Anastasius are still extant. He also wrote a congratulatory letter to Clovis, king of the Franks, on his conversion to Christianity. He endeavored to revoke the condemnation of Acacius (q.v,), and thus brought upon himself the hatred of the Roman clergy (Baronius, sub anno 497). He died A.D. 498. — Riddle, Hist. of Papacy, 1, 192; Baronius, Annal. A.D. 496.
