Timothy's emissaries to Alexandria [[anathema]]tized the Council of Chalcedon from the pulpit. Within a year of his accession patriarch Timothy directed that the Thrice Holy should be recited with the Monophysite addition of "Who was crucified for us". This led to disturbances in two churches, disturbances in which many were slain over [[November 4]] and [[November 4|5]], and to a terrible riot the following day which nearly caused the deposition of the Emperor Anastasius.
Patr. Timothy died in 518 and was succeed by Patr. John II.
