(d. 598),

Patr. of Antioch 559–70 and 593–8. A critic of Justinian I's aphthartodocetism, he was deposed by Justinian II and spent 23 years in exile. A key figure in the dogmatic discussions of the time, he wrote treatises against a tritheist, on the Trinity and Incarnation, on the providence of God, and on numerous problems of biblical interpretation. He defended the creed of Chalcedon, but tried to close the gap with the Monophysites.
