PONTIFACTS

May 6, 2019

Pope Anastasius, our "model of piety and sanctity" wins quite a reputation from the contemporary figures of the day, and crush-prone priests. But is it a deserved reputation, when we have so little to credit him for? In his episode, we go back to the origin of Origen, explore the diss tracks of Tyrannius Rufinus and Jerome, find another Eusebius, and speculate about potential papal progeny.
