About Pope Eugene I

  • Pope Eugene I (died 2 June 657), also known as Eugenius I, was Bishop of Rome from 10 August 654 to his death in 657.
  • He was a native of Rome, born to one Rufinianus. In June 653, in the midst of a dispute with Byzantine Emperor Constans II over Monothelitism, Pope Martin I was seized and carried to Constantinople and subsequently exiled to Cherson in the Crimea.
  • Initially, in the pontiff's absence, the church was probably governed by the archpriest, archdeacon and the primicerius of the notaries.
  • Over a year later, and with no sign of Martin's return, Eugene was chosen to succeed.
  • If the emperor expected Eugene to take a different approach from that of his predecessor, he was disappointed.
