Alexander Bishop of Antioch,

Resource Toolbox

succeeded Porphyrins, A.D. 413, as the thirty-eighth bishop of the see. Before he was raised to the episcopate he had lived an ascetic life in a monastery. The influence of his mild words and winning character led to the healing of the schism which had lasted eighty-five years: between the remaining partisans of the banished Eustathius and the main body of the Church. He restored the name of Chrysostom to the ecclesiastical registers. He excited the people of Constantinople to demand the restitution of their archbishop's name from the intruder Atticus. He was succeeded by Theodotus, A.D. 421.
