Pope Anastasius II was pope from November 24, 496 to November 19, 498.

He lived in the time of the schism of Acacius of Constantinople. He showed some tendency towards conciliation, and thus brought upon himself the lively reproaches of the author of the "Liber Pontificalis." On the strength of this tradition, Dante placed this pope in Hell.
