pope. He succeeded Pope Marcellinus in 308; he became unpopular because he enforced the canons on penance and was exiled for treating an apostate with severity. He died in exile, but not apparently by a violent death. But he is called a martyr in early liturgical books. His body lies under the Roman church dedicated to his name. Feast: 16 January.
