I heard recently that one of the pre-schism Bishops of Rome went out of his way to say that the Bishop of Rome does not possess any special authority, power, etc over any other bishop and is merely the "first among equals". Is that true and, if so, can anyone find the quote and its attribution? Google is failing me.
