SUMMARY / RELATED TOPICS

Pope Pontian

Pope Pontian was Pope from 21 July 230 to 28 September 235. In 235, during the persecution of Christians in the reign of the Emperor Maximinus Thrax, Pontian was arrested and sent to the island of Sardinia, he resigned to make the election of a new pope possible. A little more is known of Pontian than his predecessors from a lost papal chronicle, available to the compiler of the Liberian Catalogue of Bishops of Rome, written in the 4th century; the Liber Pontificalis states that his father's name was Calpurnius. Early church historian Eusebius wrote. Pontian's pontificate was relatively peaceful under the reign of the tolerant Emperor Severus Alexander, he presided over the Roman synod which approved Origen's expulsion and deposition by the Alexandrian bishop Demetrius in 230 or 231. According to Eusebius, the next emperor, overturned his predecessor's policy of tolerance towards Christianity. Both Pope Pontian and the Antipope Hippolytus of Rome were arrested and exiled to labor in the mines of Sardinia regarded as a death sentence.

In light of his sentence, Pontian resigned as bishop, so as to allow an orderly transition in the Church of Rome, on 28 September 235. This action ended a schism, he was beaten to death with sticks. Neither Hippolytus nor Pontian survived reconciling with one another there or in Rome before their deaths. Pontian died in October 235. Pope Fabian had the bodies of both Pontian and Hippolytus brought back to Rome in 236 or 237, the former buried in the papal crypt in the Catacomb of Callixtus on the Appian Way; the slab covering his tomb was discovered in 1909. On it is inscribed in Greek: Ποντιανός Επίσκ; the inscription "Μάρτυρ", "MARTUR" had been added in another hand. In the Eastern Orthodox Church and the General Roman Calendar of 1969, Pontian and Hippolytus are commemorated jointly on 13 August. In those Catholic communities which use a historical calendar such as the General Roman Calendar of 1960, Pontian's feast day is celebrated on 19 November.
