Pope Stephen V

Pope Stephen V was Pope from September 885 to his death in 891. He succeeded Pope Adrian III, was in turn succeeded by Pope Formosus. In his dealings with Constantinople in the matter of Photius, as in his relations with the young Slavic Orthodox church, he pursued the policy of Pope Nicholas I, his father Hadrian, who belonged to the Roman aristocracy, entrusted his education to his relative, Bishop Zachary, librarian of the Holy See. Stephen was created cardinal-priest of Santi Quattro Coronati by Marinus I, his obvious holiness was the cause of his being chosen pope, he was consecrated in September 885 without waiting for the imperial confirmation. Stephen was called upon to face a famine caused by a drought and by locusts, as the papal treasury was empty he had to fall back on his father's wealth to relieve the poor, to redeem captives, to repair churches. Following the death of Saint Methodius, a disciple of Methodius, became his successor. However, due to the influence of the German clergy, Stephen forbade the use of the Slavonic liturgy.

Most of the Slavs would follow under jurisdiction of the Ecumenical Patriarchate. To promote order he crowned him emperor, he recognized Louis the Blind as King of Provence. Since Aurelian, Archbishop of Lyon, would not consecrate Teutbold, canonically elected Bishop of Langres, Stephen himself consecrated him, he had opposed the arbitrary proceedings of the archbishops of Bordeaux and Ravenna, resisted the attacks which the Patriarch Photius made on the Holy See. His resistance was successful, Emperor Leo VI sent him into exile; when writing against Photius, he begged the emperor to send warships and soldiers to enable him to ward off the assaults of the Saracens on papal territory and southern Italy and from 885 to 886 the Byzantines reoccupied southern Italy from the Muslims. In 887/8 Stephen wrote that Christian slaves of Muslims, who were subsequently mutilated by their captors, could become priests, he excused them if they murdered during their captivity. Stephen, who received many English pilgrims and envoys bringing Peterspence, was buried in the portico of the basilica of that Apostle.
