An anti Pope is someone who claims to be Pope but has not duly received the office of Bishop of Rome. The role is technically a schismatic Bishop claiming jurisdiction of the Church in opposition to the legitimately elected pope, by making a significant attempt to occupy the position of Bishop of Rome and leader of the Catholic Church.

Laurentius was Archpriest of Santa Prassede and later antipope of the See of Rome.   
He was elected pope on November 22, 498 at the Basilica Saint Mariae with the support of a dissenting faction with Byzantine sympathies.
The faction was supported by Eastern Roman Emperor Anastasius I Dicorus, in opposition to Pope Symmachus.   
Laurentius' Pontificate was from November 22, 498 to August 5(6), 508.

Each time an antipope came into existence, was the reason always the same?
