Pope. Born about 720; died 1 or 3 August, 772. He had been a Benedictine monk, and had been ordained priest by Pope Zachary. His last years like his first were troubled by cruelty. Paul Afiarta, now in power, wreaked vengeance on his enemies. Stephen IV is venerated as a saint in certain districts of Sicily but not by the universal church.
