Pope Benedict II

Pope Benedict II (Latin: Benedictus II; 635 – 8 May 685) was Pope from 26 June 684 to his death in 685.He succeeded Leo II. Although chosen in 683, he was not ordained until 684 because the permission of Emperor Constantine IV was not obtained until some months after the election. According to the Liber Diurnus Romanorum Pontificum, he obtained from the Emperor a decree which either abolished imperial confirmations altogether or made them obtainable from the Exarch of Ravenna.
