Our father among the [[saint]]s '''Anastasius I of Antioch''' (also '''Athanasios''') was the [[List of Patriarchs of Antioch|Bishop of Antioch]] during the late sixth century. He is also known as '''Anastasius the Sinaite''', an appellation which is shared by another saint who lived later; they share a [[feast day]] of [[April 20]].
St. Anastasius was elected to the [[see]] of Antioch while [[Justinian]] was emperor. When Justinian became a follower of the [[heresy]] of [[Docetism]], Anastasius and [[Eutychius of Constantinople|Eutychius]], [[Patriarch of Constantinople]], opposed him. Justinian's successor, [[Justin II]], banished St. Anastasius.
St. [[Gregory the Great]] restored Anastasius to the see of Antioch after 23 years, in the reign of [[Maurice]]. St. Anastasius died in 599.
