WITH LOVE FROM EBAUMS WITH LOVE FROM EBAUMS WITH LOVE FROM EBAUMS WITH LOVE FROM EBAUMS WITH LOVE FROM EBAUMS WITH LOVE FROM EBAUMSOur 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. {{start box}}{{succession|before=[[Domnus III of Antioch|Domnus III]]|title=[[List of Patriarchs of Antioch|Patriarch of Antioch]]|years=561-571|after=[[Gregory of Antioch|Gregory]]|}}{{succession|before=Gregory|title=Patriarch of Antioch|years=594-599|after=[[Anastasius II of Antioch|Anastasius II]]}}{{end box}} ==External links==*[ Blessed Anastasius Sinaites, Patriarch of Antioch] (''[[Prologue of Ohrid]]'')*[ St. Anastasius] (''[[Roman Catholic|Catholic]] Encyclopedia'')*[[w:Anastasius the Sinaite|''Anastasius the Sinaite'' at Wikipedia]]*[ Blessed Anastasius the Sinaite and Patriarch of Antioch] ([[OCA]]) [[Category:Bishops]][[Category:6th-century bishops]][[Category:Patriarchs of Antioch]][[Category:Saints]][[Category:Byzantine Saints]][[Category:6th-century saints]]
