Description

Pope Saint Leo II was Pope from 17 August 682 to 28 June 683. He is one of the popes of the Byzantine Papacy.

Elected shortly after the death of Agatho, Leo was not consecrated for over a year and a half. The reason may have been due to negotiations regarding imperial control of papal elections.

Leo was originally buried in his own monument; however, some years after his death, his remains were put into a tomb that contained the first four of his papal namesakes.
