A report on Pope Gelasius I and Acacian schism

Statue of Gelasius I, Schloss Stainz
Europe 500 AD, in the midst of the schism . Western Europe was loyal to the Bishop of Rome (then Pope Symmachus).

The Papal election of Gelasius on 1 March 492 was a gesture of continuity: Gelasius inherited the conflicts of Pope Felix III with Eastern Roman Emperor Anastasius and the Patriarch of Constantinople and exacerbated them by insisting on the obliteration of the name of the late Acacius, Patriarch of Constantinople, from the diptychs, in spite of every ecumenical gesture by the contemporaneous Patriarch Euphemius (q. v. for details of the Acacian schism).

Felix's successor Gelasius also refused any compromise as a betrayal of the Council of Chalcedon.
