The pope condemned by an ecumenical council

Constantine IV (668-85) summoned the sixth of the ecumenical councils in November 680 — the Third Council of Constantinople. The council was a total triumph for the foes of Monotheletism, vindicating the belief in Christ’s full humanity for which Maximus and Martin had suffered. The council also named and condemned those who had taught the single-energy and single-will doctrine, especially patriarch Sergius of Constantinople and Pope Honorius, calling them instruments of Satan, heretics, and blasphemers.
