Regestum

Pope Pelagius II writes to Helias, the patriarch of Aquileia, and all the bishops of Istria, the province whose prelates still persevered in their refusal to condemn the three chapters denounced by the Fifth Ecumenical Council (Constantinople II) of 553, urging them to desist from their schismatic ways and return to the embrace of the Catholic Church.

590_HL

Regestum

Following the death of Aquileian patriarch Helias, his successor, Patriarch Severus, together with three other bishops (including the bishop of Poreč, John) are imprisoned in Ravenna by the Byzantine exarch Smaragdus; in order to buy their freedom, the prelates agree to condemn the Three Chapters and reunite with Rome, a move that greatly angers other bishops in the ecclesiastical province of Aquileia. Finally, a synod is held in Marano (591) whereby Patriarch Severus is forced to formally acknowledge the error of his ways in supporting the condemnation of the Three Chapters (narrative accounts from Paul the Deacon's History of the Lombards).

Date
590-591
