To strengthen the position of the Orthodox, Stephen of Dora traveled to [[Pope]] [[Martin the Confessor|Martin]] in Rome who on Stephen's recommendation assigned Bp. John of Philadelphia as Patriarchal Vicar for the Church of Jerusalem. Pope Martin also sent letters that announced his decision and asked that John be recognized. From this time on there are no records about the patriarchate until 705. During this period it is only known that Anastasius had signed the decisions, probably as the patriarch, of the [[Quinisext Council]] of 692 in Constantinople during which the decision was made that the Jerusalem patriarchate occupied fifth position in the ranks of the patriarchates.
