249. LE PREMIER PATRIARCAT DE PHOTIUS 35 confié » et à tenir si peu compte, à mépriser même les injonc tions de Léon IV et de Benoît III. L'ambassade pontificale, poursuivait Nicolas I™, a reçu mis sion d'enquêter sérieusement sur la déposition d'Ignace et la censure dont il a fait l'objet, afin de vérifier si la procédure canonique a été observée. Quand il aurait reçu son rapport, il déciderait ce qu'il fallait faire, « pour que votre Église, chaque jour agitée par tant d'anxiétés, reste dorénavant invul nérable et inébranlable ».
Car le pape n'a pas à se reprocher d'avoir envahi la Crète, exterminé la Sicile et occupé une bonne partie de l'Empire byzantin. S'il est prêt à verser son sang pour la vérité, le successeur de Pierre ne veut pas croire que Michel suivra les traces des empereurs qui ont persécuté l'Église ; il y en a d'autres à imiter, qui ont bien mérité du christianisme en promulguant des lois « pour assurer l'union des Églises autour du Siège apostolique, sans jamais adopter le ton du commandement pour réunir les con ciles et proposer des avis ».
Et si la question des images ne figure pas ici comme un pur prétexte, elle ne suffit pas, à elle seule, à expliquer la démarche impériale, évidem ment soutenue, sinon inspirée par l'astucieux Photius. Le Siège apostolique considérera d'ailleurs toujours l'iconoclasme comme une question marginale dans la crise photienne. L'ambassade byzantine débarqua à Rome à la fin de l'été 860. Selon l'usage S4, elle devait remettre au pape, avec les messages susdits, de nombreux cadeaux. Zacharie de Taormina était bien connu du Saint-Siège.
