Bonifatios 2 was consiliarius of pope Benedict II (Benediktos 3); he was sent by the pope every day for forty days to talk to the former patriarch of Antioch, the monothelete Makarios 1, then at Rome, and convince him of the error of his views, but with no success: Mansi XII 1035 (Βονιφάτιον τὸν κονσιλιάριον αὐτοῦ). He was still the papal consiliarius under Sergius I (Sergios 30) after 692, when Bonifatios 2 and Ioannes 21 were forced to go to Constantinople by Sergios 45 following the refusal by the pope to subscribe the canons of the recent council (the Quinisext, of 692): Lib. Pont. 86. 7 ("Bonifatium consiliarium apostolicae sedis"). He was apparently papal consiliarius from at least 684/685 to 692/693.
