Pope Saint Simplicius was
popefrom 468 to March 10, 483.
He was born in
Tivoli, Italy, the son of a citizen named Castinus. Most of what is known of him is derived from the " Liber Pontificalis."
St. Simplicius defended the action of the
Council of Chalcedonagainst the Eutychian heresy(and its confirmation of the equality to the Bishop of Rome of the eastern patriarchs), labored to help the people of Italyagainst the marauding raids of barbarian invaders, and saw the Herulimercenaries revolt and proclaim Odoacerking of Italy in 476, having deposed Romulus Augustulus, the last Western Roman Emperor. Odoacer made few changes in the administration in Rome, firmly in the hands of its Bishop, St. Simplicius. He worked to maintain the authority of Romein the West.
St. Simplicius is credited for the construction of a church named in memory of the virgin and martyr St. Bibiana.
