Pope Severinus

Pope Severinus

(Latin: severus, austere, stern)

Born in Rome, Italy; died there in 640. He was elected 638, but was unable to secure the imperial confirmation for over a year because he refused to sign the Ecthesis of Emperor Heraclius. As pope he condemned the Ecthesis. He renewed the mosaics in the apse of Saint Peter’s.
