Book of Saints – Eulogius of Alexandria

Article

EULOGIUS of ALEXANDRIA (Saint) Bishop (September 13) (7th century) A Syrian by birth and a monk from early youth, who laboured with great fruit for the reform of morals and the strengthening of orthodox belief among his compatriots, many of whom had been seduced by the Eutychians or Monophysites. Eulogius was Patriarch of Alexandria from A.D. 579 to A.D. 607. Photius gives an account of his writings in terms of high praise. His correspondence with his friend Saint Gregory the Great (whose letters to him are extant) is interesting. One of the Epistles contains Saint Gregory’s account of his having sent Saint Augustine to England.
