  Liber Pontificalis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Book of the Popes or the Liber Pontificalis is a major source for early medieval history but was also met with intense critical scrutiny.
Because the Liber Pontificalis was produced by minor officials of the papal court the evidence has been sifted for signs of bias, suppression, and falsification, all of which are found in quantity without invalidating the material as an historical source.
From the early 7th century (roughly the time of the pontificate of Honorius I) forward until the pontificate of Adrian II the entries are contemporary, added shortly after the death of each pope, and, although reflecting biases of the authors, are at least reasonably accurate.

During the 16th century there was some discussion about the authorship of the Liber, and for some time it was thought to be the work of an Italian monk, Anastasius Bibliothecarius (d.
The Liber contains much information about papal affairs in general, and about endowments, martyrdoms and the like, but a considerable part of it is obviously legendary.
The Liber, which was used by Bede for his Historia Ecclesiastica, was first printed at Mainz in 1602.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Pope St. Eleutherius
The "Liber Pontificalis" ascribes to Pope Eleutherius a decree that no kind of food should be despised by Christians (Et hoc iterum firmavit ut nulla esca a Christianis repudiaretur, maxime fidelibus, quod Deus creavit, quæ tamen rationalis et humana est).
The unsupported assertion of the "Liber Pontificalis", a compilation of papal biographies that in its earliest form cannot antedate the first quarter of the sixth century, is not a sufficient basis for the acceptance of this statement.
It falls before the simple fact that the first part of the "Liber Pontificalis" was complied long before these dissensions, most probably (Duchesne) by a Roman cleric in the reign of Pope Boniface II (530-532), or (Waitz and Mommsen) early in the seventh century.

It was compiled between 685 and 751, and was constantly employed until the nth century, when, owing to the changed circumstances of the Church, it fell into disuse, and was soon forgotten and lost.
During the I7th century a manuscript of the Liber was discovered in Rome by the humanist, Lucas Holstenius, who prepared an edition for publication; for politic reasons, however, the papal authorities would not allow this to appear, as the book asserted the superiority of a general council over the pope.
The two existing manuscripts of the Liber are in the Vatican library, Rome, and in the library of St Ambrose at Milan.

According to the notice in the "Liber Pontificalis", Felix erected a basilica on the Via Aurelia; the same source also adds that he was buried there ("Hic fecit basilicam in Via Aurelia, ubi et sepultus est").
The statement of the "Liber Pontificalis" concerning the pope's martyrdom results obviously from a confusion with a Roman martyr of the same name buried on the Via Aurelia, and over whose grave a church was built.
The notice in the "Liber Pontificalis" ascribes to this pope a decree that Masses should be celebrated on the tombs of martyrs ("Hic constituit supra memorias martyrum missas celebrare").

In his celebrated edition of the Liber Pontificalis, Duchesne pointed out that some passages resemble texts from the Old Testament (especially from 1 and 2 Kings, and to some extent also from Chronicles).
Duchesne noticed that – particularly in the case of the lives of the earliest popes- the papal biographies have been constructed according to a set framework, describing (for instance) the lineage of the pope in question, the duration of his pontificate, the time of his death and the place of his burial.
Building on Duchesne’s conclusions, she argued that the earliest papal lives contained layers of meaning hitherto undetected: by being commemorated in the same format as the biblical kings, the popes were set up as the heirs to the kingdoms of the Israelites, with Rome as the new Jerusalem.
