Stephen II (III)

 

 

26 Mar.752 – 26 Apr.757

In March 752 an elderly presbyter, Stephen was elected pope, but died before he was ordained bishop. His successor, confusingly, was also called Stephen. Under modern canon law, however, a man is pope from the moment of election. Some modern Roman Catholic lists therefore count the first of these two Stephens as Pope Stephen II, with a consequent disturbance of the numbering of all subsequent  Stephens. He is omitted from our list, but the variant numberings are noted.

Leo VIII

 

 

4 Dec.963 – 1 Mar.965

Because John XII was deposed by the Emperor Otto I, the validity of Leo VIII’s election has been contested, and he is included as an antipope in many lists. The Roman Catholic Church’s official list of popes, as printed in the Annuario Pontifico, recognises him as a true pope.
