Pope Theodore II (Latin: Theodorus II; 840 – December 897) was Pope for twenty days in December 897 before his death. He ordained as a priest by Pope Stephen V; also his brother Theotius was a bishop.[1] He reinstated the clerics who had been forced from office by Pope Stephen VI, recognizing the validity of the ordinations of Pope Formosus. He had the body of Formosus, which had been thrown in the Tiber and recovered near the ancient harbour of Porto, just south of Rome, reburied in St. Peter's Basilica.[2]
