New Catholic Dictionary – Pope Stephen (VI) VII


(896-897), born Rome; died there, by strangulation. He was Bishop of Anagni before his election. Although letters extant from the beginning of his reign show that at first he was zealous for the welfare of the Church, his pontificate was impaired by his council, 897, in which the process of Formosus was completed at the instigation of Ageltruda and her son Lambert, the political leaders of Rome.
