Executive summary: Roman Catholic Pope, 701-05

John VI, Roman Catholic Pope from 701 to 705, was a native of Greece, and succeeded to the papal chair two months after the death of Pope Sergius I. He assisted the exarch Theophylact, who had been sent into Italy by the emperor Justinian II, and prevented him from using violence against the Romans. Partly by persuasion and partly by means of a bribe, John succeeded in inducing Gisulf, Duke of Benevento, to withdraw from the territories of the empire.
