(649-655) Pope Martin strongly opposed Monothelitism, a doctrine that suggested the natures of Christ were activated by a single will. This doctrine was devised by Sergius of Constantinople to consiliate the Egyptian Church's belief in Monophysitism. Martin considered Monothelitism an egregious separation from the Council of Chalcedon, which had rejected Monophysitism and declared that Christ had two natures. Constans II was displeased with Martin's denunciation, and ordered Byzantine troops to take him to Constantinople, where Martin died soon after being exiled as a traitor.
