Our father among the saints Anastasius I of Antioch (also Athanasios) was the 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, 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.
