New post Did any of the Antipopes teach error/heresy?
I was just reading through the interesting story of Innocent II, the anti-pope Anacletus II and St Bernard on the Catholic Encyclopedia site. But I got to thinking, there have been something around 60? anti-popes over the last 19 or so centuries, does anyone here know if an anti-pope ever tried to teach error or declare something heretical ? Or were they all orthodox as well, except for intruding into the See of Peter.

I wonder if the behavior of the anti-popes and how the Church dealt with them, might shed any light on the crisis in the Church today.

No, none of them that I've ever read about preached heresy. The closest analogue to what you are suggesting would be Benedict XIII and St. Vincent Ferrer's judgement that he had lost the papacy by schism. Read this thread for the data: http://www.strobertbellarmine.net/forum ... 5514#p5514

Thank you for that link. I had read that St Vincent Ferrer had supported the antipope Benedict, but I never knew he was also instrumental in ending the schism.

I am not even sure if I ought to be surprised that even the antipopes never taught error. What does that tell us about this modern crisis ?!!? It is positively diabolical. I think I am beginning to see why some Catholics have come to the conclusion we are in the midst of the great apostacy. This crisis is breathtaking in its scope and depth.
