 Pope St. Zephyrinus
This is evidently to be understood as meaning that Zephyrinus had not taken the higher studies and had devoted himself to the practical administration of the Church and not to theological learning.
Zephyrinus said simply that he acknowledged only one God, and this was the Lord Jesus Christ, but it was the Son, not the Father, Who had died.
The result was that Hippolytus grew constantly more irritated and angry against he pope and particularly against the deacon Callistus whom, as the councillor of the pope, he made responsible for the position of the latter.

Pope Pius IX and Giovanni Battista de Rossi, father of Christian archeology, were the masterminds of efforts to bring Rome's catacombs to light.
It is to their credit if today we can learn about and visit these places so dear to Christian memory because, for many centuries after the martyrs' relics were translated inside the city walls, most of the nearly 60 catacombs along the consular roads leading to Rome had been left in a state of abandon.
The statue we see today is a copy of the celebrated work sculpted by Maderno in 1600 and represents the body of the martyr in the exact position in which it was found intact in 1599 when the sarcophagus was opened to identify the mortal remains.

Pope St Zephyrinus was the first to create one on the Appian Way for the Roman community, entrusting it to the care of the deacon Callixtus, who, when he became Pope, linked his name to what became the largest network of the catacombs in Rome.

Consequently when Callistus was elected pope (217-218) on the death of Zephyrinus, Hippolytus immediately left the communion of the Roman Church and had himself elected antipope by his small band of followers.
