There are two saints called Anastasius the Sinaite or Anastasius of Sinai (also Anastasios). They are both commemorated on April 20.

  • St. Anastasius I of Antioch (d. 598), also called "the Sinaite," was bishop of Antioch, exiled, then restored to his see in 593 by St. Gregory the Great.
  • St. Anastasius of Sinai (d. 698), or "the Sinaite," was a writer opposing heresies who also served as the abbot at the monstery of Mount Sinai in the 7th century. He is considered one of the Greek Fathers of the Church.
