Pope and Antipope — an Odd Feast

Filed under: Patristics

Today’s the shared memorial of two former enemies, Saints Pontian and Hippolytus, pope and antipope (respectively). It’s an amazing story. I’ll be talking about P&H with Bruce and Kris McGregor on KVSS radio this morning, and eventually the audio will migrate to their Aquilina page.

Jeff Ziegler leads us to these links:

St. Pontian.
St. Hippolytus.
– The “Apostolic Tradition of St. Hippolytus is the source of Eucharistic Prayer II.
– Dieric Bouts the Elder, St. Hippolytus Triptych (after 1468).

I think I need new glasses. At first I thought the subject bar read, “Pope and Antelope – An Odd Feast”!

That would be odd indeed. What wine would you serve?

Very interesting. I bet they both got a good laugh when they saw eachother in Heaven!
