Pope Eugene II

[Pope Eugene II]
Profile
Archpriest of Santa Sabina. His election as 99th pope was a triumph for the Roman nobility and the Franks whose power his predecessor, Pope Paschal I, had attempted to curb. The Frankish influence was strengthened politically, but lessened ecclesiastically when Louis the Pious sent his son to Rome and a constitution was agreed upon between the emperor and the pope. In 826 Eugene advanced the cause of learning by decrees promulgated at a council in Rome.
