[Pope Saint Felix III]Article

FELIX III (Saint) Pope. (February 25) (5th century) An ancestor of Saint Gregory the Great. Saint Felix succeeded Pope Saint Simplicius, A.D. 483, and fought against Monophytism or Eutychianism, which heresy denied that Christ had the nature of man besides that of God. He deposed Acacius, Bishop of Constantinople, for heresy and schism. Before his death (A.D. 492) he held a Synod to decide the measures to be taken with those who had apostatised during the Vandal persecution. He is by many reputed the author of the so-called Sacramentarium Leonianum.
