(d. c.359),

Bp. of Emesa (modern Homs) in Syria. He was a biblical exegete and writer on doctrinal subjects, of Semiarian sympathies. Having declined the see of Alexandria when Athanasius was deposed in 339, he became Bp. of Emesa soon afterwards. Until modern times, only fragments of his works were known, but some 30 sermons have now been ascribed to him. A (quite different) collection of sermons of Gallican provenance has long gone under the name of ‘Eusebius’; these are now believed to be derived from Faustus of Riez.
