Fortunatus I, patriarcha Gradensis



Pope Honorius incites all the bishops of the ecclesiastical province Venetia et Histria to profess disobedience to the deposed patriarch Fortunatus of Grado and to accept subdeacon Primogenius, to whom the pope had already sent the pallium, as their new lawful head of the ecclesiastical province; moreover, the pope promises to open diplomatic negotiations with the Lombard king, with whom the deposed Fortunatus sought refuge, with the goal of restoring all the ecclesiastical goods stolen by the said Fortunatus.
