Agapetus Ii


AGAPETUS II., pope from 946 to 955, at the time when Alberic, son of Marozia, was governing the independent republic of Rome under the title of "prince and senator of the Romans." He did his best to restore church discipline and to regain temporal power. His appeal to Otto the Great to intervene in Rome remained with out immediate effect, since Alberic's position was too strong to be attacked, but it bore fruit after his death. Agapetus died on Nov. 8 955.
