Pope Lucius I

Lucius I., pope for eight months (253-254), spent a short period of his pontificate in exile. He is referred to in several letters of Cyprian (see Epist. Ixviii. 5) as having been in agreement with his predecessor Pope Cornelius in preferring the milder view on the question as to how the lapsed penitent should be treated. He is commemorated on March 4.

preceded by Pope Cornelius (251-253)
succeeded by Pope Stephen I (254-257)
