Pope Boniface II was pope from 530 to 532.

He was by birth an Ostrogoth, the first Germanic pope, and he owed his appointment to the influence of the Gothic king Athalaric. Boniface was chosen by his predecessor, Pope Felix IV, who had been a strong adherent of the Arian king, and was never elected. Boniface had for some time an antipope, Dioscurus, who had been elected by most of the priests of Romemarker. Boniface and Dioscorus were both consecrated in Rome on 22 September 530, but Dioscurus died only twenty-two days later.

Roman Calendar

Boniface changed the numbering of the years in the Julian Calendar from Ab Urbe Condita to Anno Domini (GM Arts).
