Basilius of Cilicia, Presbyter of Antioch

Basilius of Cilicia , presbyter of Antioch and bp. of Irenopolis in Cilicia, c. 500; the author of an Ecclesiastical History in three books, from a.d.450 to the close of Justin's reign. Photius speaks disparagingly of it ( Cod. 42). He also wrote a violent book against Joannes Scythopolitanus, and Photius ( Cod. 107) says its object was to oppose the doctrine of the union of the two natures in Christ.
