(Saint) Pope (June 28) (8th century) The brother and successor of Pope Stephen II. He ruled the Church with wisdom and zeal for ten years; and he strenuously defended the Catholic doctrine of the veneration due to pictures and statues of Christ and the Saints against the Greek Emperor Constantine Copronymus. In Rome he restored and beautified the churches and enshrined the Relics of many Saints. He passed away, amid the tears of his flock, June 22, A.D. 767.
