Adeodatus II, Pope of Rome
Adeodatus was a monk at St. Erasmo on the Caelian Hill before his election
to the papacy in 672. As pope, he rebuilt buildings at the monastery and
restored the basilica of St. Peter's on the Via Portuguese. Patriarch
Constantine I of Constantinople removed the pope's name from the ditychs
since Adeodatus was not a monothelite and the patriarch was. Adeodatus was
the first pope to date events in terms of his reign, and he died in the
fourth year of his reign, or in 676.
