- Anastasius the Elder
Patriarch of Antioch in 559. A learned, austere, pious and quiet man who strictly adhered to orthodox Christianity and had a knack for comforting the sick and bereaved. Opposed the heretical ideas on the Eucharist espoused by Emperor Justinian, and in 570 was exiled for 23 years by Emperor Justino II. Several of his writings have survived, including some on the theological controversies of the day.
