San DAMASO I (circa 305 - December 11, 384). Consecrated Pope in 366 at the same time as Ursino, elected by the opposite faction, the double election led to serious disturbances in Rome, with dead and wounded in armed clashes. Ursino, reduced to exile, never ceased to oppose his rival, and even to the death of Damaso tried again, unnecessarily, to oppose his successor. Damasco's temporal authority, defended with diplomacy but also with weapons, attracted the pope's criticisms of the pagans and of some Christian environments, who saw him too interested in maintaining earthly power and accusing him of personal personal accusations. In spite of all, Damaso succeeded in defending the orthodoxy of the Catholic Church against heresies, the supremacy of the Roman bishopric, and affirming the dogma of the divinity of the Holy Spirit, with the reformulation of the 'Nicene symbol'. Under his pontificate, Theodosius emanated the Edict of Thessalonica proclaiming Catholicism 'state religion'; Damaso was also able to devote himself to the artistic revaluation of places of worship, including the restoration and recovery of catacombs, and transcribed in the tombs as the burials of martyrs and bishops were identified as epigrams of his composition. Commemoration on December 11, the day of death (Dies Natalis, birth in the sky). Colored Etching, Italy 1886
