Or Ignace a été nommé direc tement par Théodora. Il a été imposé au synode par une femme, et promu patriarche par la volonté d'une femme. « Le seigneur Taraise lui-même, répondit Ignace, a été promu patriarche par une femme ». « Ne dis pas une femme, rétorqua 38 CONSTANTINOPLE IV Michel III, car c'était une femme-empereur quand le seigneur Méthode et le seigneur Taraise furent faits patriarches » *. A la fin de la session, les commissaires impériaux eurent beau inviter Ignace à donner sa démission, c'est-à-dire à recon naître l'invalidité de son élection, ils ne purent le convaincre.
Le canon 3 réduisait à l'état laïc tous ceux que « le néophyte Photius, ravisseur du siège de Constantinople » avait élevés à une dignité ecclésiastique quelconque. A propos d'Ignace, le synode ordonnait et proclamait (can. 4), « de par l'autorité du juge suprême Jésus-Christ », qu'il n'était ni déposé ni anathématisé, n'ayant été chassé qu'en vertu de la puissance impériale et sans aucune autorité cano nique. « En vertu de la puissance octroyée par Dieu à saint Pierre », il était réintégré « dans son ancienne dignité, dans son rang et son patriarcat ».

Dans sa résistance acharnée aux injonctions de Rome, le patriarche Photius trouve ainsi, paradoxalement, en l'antipape d'hier un adversaire à sa taille. La lettre pontificale * Proposueramus ». L'offensive de l'empereur byzantin, en obligeant le pape « à accorder sa lyre », comme écrit Nicolas, « à l'ire » de son correspondant, a eu comme heureux résultat de provoquer un document de première importance pour l'histoire de la pri mauté romaine et celle des rapports entre l'Église et l'État**.
