Quick Reference

(d. 425), Patr. of Constantinople from 406.

Though a bitter opponent of St John Chrysostom, he realized that the quarrel with Rome over Chrysostom's condemnation weakened the prestige of his see; he re-established communion with Rome and restored Chrysostom's name to the diptychs. At the request of Aurelius, Bp. of Carthage, he repelled Pelagians. In the E. Church he is venerated as a saint. Feast days, 8 Jan. and 11 Oct.
