Pope Zosimus

Zosimus, pope (March 18, 417 - December 25, 418), succeeded Innocent I, and was followed by Boniface I.

For his attitude in the Pelagian[?] controversy, see Pelagius. He took a decided part in the protracted dispute in Gaul as to the jurisdiction of the see of Arles over that of Vienne, giving energetic decisions in favour of the former, but without settling the controversy. His fractious temper coloured all the controversies in which he took part, in Gaul, Africa and Italy, including Rome, where at his death the clergy were very much divided.
