Petrus II, Bishop of Pachoras

XI Century
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 the Pachoras 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 honour of Peter I, the last bishop before the dyophysites took over.

Under construction --- far from complete! Read with caution.
