Pope Anastasius II



A native of Rome, elected 24 Nov., 496; d. 16 Nov., 498. His congratulatory letter to Clovis , on the occasion of the latter's conversion is now deemed a forgery of the seventeenth century (J. Kavet, Bibl. de l ec. des Chartres, 1885, XLVI, 258-59). He insisted in the removal from the diptychs of the name of Acacius, Patriarch of Constantinople, but recognized the validity of his sacramental acts, an attitude that displeased the Romans. He also condemned Traducianisin.

P.L., CXXVIII, 439-450; Lib. Pont. (ed. DUCHESNE), I, 258; HEMMER in Dict. de Theol. Cath., I, 1163-64; THIEL, Epist.Rom. Pont. (1868), II, 82-85, 614-15.
