Theodore II
pope A.D. 897.

born , Rome
died December 897, Rome

      pope for 20 days during December 897. He was elected during one of the darkest periods in papal history, caused by the “Cadaver Synod” at which Pope Stephen VI had posthumously deposed and desecrated the disinterred corpse of Pope Formosus. Despite his brief reign, Theodore vindicated Formosus' pontificate at a synod, after which he honourably buried the corpse—retrieved by Theodore's predecessor Romanus—at St. Peter's, Rome. Because of the intrigue in Rome over the Cadaver Synod and its consequences, some suspect that Theodore was murdered for his acts.
