Petrus II, Bishop of Pachoras
According to the Polish historians of Nubia,
Peter II returned the
Nubian Church to miaphysitism
after half a century in the Eastern Orthodox
communion. There is a two-year gap in
bishop list before his consecration,
which took place in the same year (1058) as a visit
to Nubia by the Coptic Pope Christodulus.
One assumes that he took the name "Peter" in
Peter I, the last
bishop before the dyophysites took over.
Under construction --- far from complete! Read with caution.
