Felix III

Felix III

(II?) was elected successor of Simplicius A.D. 483, under the influence of the Gothic emperor Odoacer. He and Acacius, bishop of Constantinople, mutually excommunicated each other, and thus gave occasion to the first schism between the Greek and Latin churches. He died Feb. 24 or 25, 492. He is commemorated by the Roman Church as a saint (Feb. 25).-Mosheim, Ch. Hist. cent. v, pt. ii, ch. v, § 18, 21; Bower, History of the Popes, ii, 193 sq. SEE MONOPHYSITES.
