Pope from 352 to 366. Ordered by the Arian Emp. Constantius to assent to the condemnation of St Athanasius as a rebel, Liberius refused and was banished from Rome in 355. In 357 he submitted and in 358 he was allowed to reoccupy his see, having agreed to the deposition of Athanasius and signed a confession of faith which, while not mentioning the homoousion, is otherwise orthodox.
