Saint Paschal I Biography

Pope Saint Paschal I was the son of Bonosus. He studied at the Lateran Basilica in Rome, Italy and became a Benedictine monk. Later, he served as an abbot of Saint Stephen’s monastery, which was near the Vatican and which housed pilgrims to Rome. Later elected as the 98th pope in 817 AD.

Pascal defended the Greeks against iconoclastic emperors and sheltered refugees from the iconoclast persecutions. He supported Saint Nicephorus and Saint Theodore Studites. He preserved the relics of Saint Caecilia and other martyrs.

When two papal officials were found blinded and murdered, he was accused of the crime. He was not involved, but the murderers were members of his household and he refused to surrender them claiming that the victims were traitors and that secular authorities had no jurisdiction over events that occurred within the Vatican. The dispute resulted in the Constitution of Lothair, which set specific limits on the law enforcement and judicial powers of the pope.
