Alexander Bishop of Hierapolis

Resource Toolbox

an adherent of Nestorius. At the Council of Ephesus (431), where he had been sent as a delegate, he signed, with eight other bishops, a letter addressed by Nestorius to the Emperor Theodosius, for the purpose of obtaining the convocation of another synod, to which Cyril of Alexandria and the Egyptian bishops should not be invited. Pope Sixtus III, to whom Alexander at a later date appealed, refused him a hearing, and at length the emperor banished him to Famothis in Egypt. Twenty-three letters, existing in a Latin translation (Epist. Lupi Ephesiane), are ascribed to him as author; and Suidas reports a discourse of his, Quid novi Christus in mundum intulerit.
