EUGENIUS I., pope from 654 to 657. Elected on the banishment of Martin I. by the emperor Constans II., and at the height of the Monothelite crisis, he showed greater deference than his predecessor to the emperor's wishes, and made no public stand against the patriarchs of 'Constantinople. He, however, held no communication with them, being closely watched in this respect by Roman opinion.
