Talk:Leo III of Rome
I think that Pope Leo III of Rome was never listed as a saint in an Orthodox Church. I do not see him on the OCA calendar or the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America calendar. Is this because that Rome did not canonize him until after the schism, or maybe the Charlemagne stuff?
- He is listed as a pre-schism saint at the "Latin Saints of the Orthodox Patriarchate of Rome" website (St John's Orthodox Church, Colchester). However you may be correct about his canonization...
- "Leo III June 12: + 816. Born in Rome, he became Pope of Rome in 795. He suffered much from political factions in Rome and was himself seized and tortured. Leo refused to add the filioque to the Nicene Creed."
