During the four years of his pontificate (138-142), St. Hyginus, successor to St. Telesphorus as Pope, opposed the heresy of Valentinus who at this period came to propagate his errors in the heart of the Christian community in Rome. He also fought the heresy of Cerdo with excommunication, twice, the second after a false repentance.
