Pope Dionysius sent large sums of money to the churches of Cappadocia, which had been devastated by the marauding Goths, to rebuild and to ransom those held captive. He brought order to the Church and procured a peace after Emperor Gallienus issued the edict of toleration. Dionysius is the first pope who is not listed as a martyr. He died on December 26, 268.
In art Pope St. Dionysius is portrayed in papal vestments with a book.
