46. Ammonius of Panephysus, in Augustamnica Prima. I find

also the following Egyptian see among the subscriptions at
the end of Act I:

47. Hermogenes, Bishop of Rhinocorura. It was in Augustam-

nica Prima.

48. Was the Eeontius, whose name is signed among the Egyp-

tians at the end of Act I, an Egyptian Prelate? The name
of his see is not told us.

49. Helladius, whose name is in the subscriptions at the end of

Act I between the Egyptians and Bosporius of Gangra was,
Bishop of Adramytium in the Province of Asia under Ephe-
sus, in the Diocese of Asia. I have looked over the Greek
signatures at the end of Act I and the Latin translation,
and do not find Publius of Olbia there. Why it is missing I
know not. It is found at the beginning of Act I on page
28, volume I of "Ephesus." It is found also at the end of
Act VI, page 231, and at its beginning, page 192, volume
II of Ephesus. Wiltsch puts it in Eibya Pentapolis.



Bishops present in the Synod. 6l



2. From the Diocese op the East under Antioch and from
Its Dependencies.

Most of the Bishops of this Patriarchate were heretics like
their fellow-Diocesans, Dioclore of Tarsus, Theodore of
Mopsuestia, and, lastly, Nestorius himself. See the names
and sees below in the Conventicle of the Apostasy. Of
course, they were no, part of the Orthodox Council at any
time.

The Patriarchate op Jerusai^em, comprising Palestine.

Palestine, in A. D. 451, at Chalcedon, was, by it, placed
under Juvenal of Jerusalem. As part of the Diocese of the Kast
it had been some time before ULder Antioch. But Juvenal was
ambitious, and would be autonomous. The Universal Church
made it then, in effect, a Patriarchate. Indeed, Juvenal, at Ephe-
sus, iu A. D. 431, had ranked just after Cyril of Alexandria, and
before Memnon, the head of the Asian Diocese: see pages 22, 23,
volume I of "Ephesus."

1 . Juvenal, Bishop of Jerusalem.

2. Theodulus, Bishop of Helusa, or, as it is written on page 45,

id., "Elusa in Palestine." Bingham gives no "Helusa," but
lie gives an "Elusa inPalestinaTertia," which seems the one
to be meant. It is put in Arabia Petraea in Butler's Atlas,
Plate XVI. There was another Elusa in Gaul, but I have
seen no proof that any Gallic Bishop was present at the
Council.

3. Romanics, Bishop of Rhaphia in the First Palestine.

4. Fidus, Bishop of Joppa in the First Palestine.

5. Ajanes, Bishop of Sycamazon in the First Palestine. His

name is spelled "Aeanes" on page 139, volume I of "Ephe-
sus."

6. Paulianus, Bishop of Maiuma, in the First Palestine, as we

see by page 134, id.

7. Theodore, Bishop of Arbdela or of Arbela, or of Aribela, as we

find it on page 138, id. There was an Arbela in Adiabene
in later times among the Nestorians. But was not this see



62 Bishops prese7it in the Synod.

Arindela in the Third Palestine, or in that part of
Arabia then attached lo it? See Wiltsch's "Geography
and Statistics of the Church," volume I, page 225, section
159. At least it stands among the sees here subject to
Jerusalem.

8. Peter, Bishop of Parembola, in the Third Palestine.

9. Paul, Bishop of Anthedon in Palestina Prima.

10. Netoras, Bishop of Gaza, in Palestina Prima.

11. Saidas, Bishop of Phoenis in the Third Palestine, or as it is

on page 145, volume I of "Ephesus," "of Phaenis in Pales-
tina Salutaris," which is the same: see Wiltsch, volume I,
page 225, note 14.

12. Joh)i, Bishop of Augustopolis. Wiltsch gives us, in the

Index to his vol. I, two sees of this name. The pages to which
he refers show that the first was in the Third Palestine
and therefore in what became the Patriarchate of Jeru-
salem by the decree of the Fourth Ecumenical Synod
in A. D. 451, and the other was in Phrygia Salutaris
in the Diocese of Asia. According to Wiltsch, vol. I, page
225, note 7, the Bishop of the former was at the Council of
Ephesus, A. D. 431. As this name occurs with the Pales-
tinian sees it is perhaps best so to take it.

13. Theodore, Bishop of Gadara. Both Bingham and Wiltsch

mention only one see of that name, and place it in Palestine,
Bingham in the Second, Wiltsch in the First. On page
138, vol. I of Ephesus, it occurs between two Palestinian sees.

From the Diocese op Macedonia, under Rufus of Thessa-
lonica, the patriarch,

according to Canons II and VI of the Second Ecumenical Synod:

compare Canon IX of the Fourth Synod.

1. Flavian of Philippi, Metropolitan of the Second Macedonia,
who represented his Patriarch, RuFUS, Metropolitan oi
Thessalonica in the First Macedonia: see page 130, vol. I
of "Ephesus" and note 4 of Hammond on the Synodal
Epistle of Nicaea in his "Canons of the Church."



Bishops present in iJie Synod.



1. Felix, Bishop of the cities of ApoUonia, and Belis (spelled also

Bulis and BuUidum in New Epirus.

2. Perigenes, Bishop of Corinth in Greece, that is in Peloppone-

sus, and Metropolitan.

3. DonatuSy Bishop of Nicopolis in Old Epirus, and Metropolitan.

4. EuchatiuSy Bishop of Dyrrhacium iu New Epirus, and Metro-

politan.

5. Anysius, Bishop of Thebes in Hellas, that is in Greece: see

pages 47, 49, volume I of "Ephesus."

6. Dommis, Bishop of Opus in Achaia. Compare note 123, page

47, volume I of "Ephesus," and page 49, where he is called
"Domnus, Bishop of Opus in Hellas." But Achaia was a
Province of Greece. So there is no difficulty.

7. Agathodcs, Bishop of Corone in Pelopponesus, or of Corone or

Coronea in Boeotia. But is this Agathocles, Bishop of the
Coronaeans, the same as Agathocles, Bishop of Colonia, on
page 24, volume I of "Ephesus?" As is stated in note
1063, on page 491 there, Marius Mercator has here "of
Coronia," which agrees best with the former reading. That
Agathocles is the only Bishop of that name in the list on
pages 22-30. Baudrand in his "Novum Lexicon Geographi-
cum," places Coronia, (Pliny's spelling of the name) in
Boeotia. He does not call it Corone. Baudrand mentions
another spelling, that is Coronea for Coronia.

8. Collicrates, Bishop of Naupactus in Achaia.

9. Nicias, Bishop of Mega r a in Achaia.

10. Perebixis, Bishop of the Thessalonian Woodlands, [in Thessaly?].

11. A^iderius, Bishop of the city of Cherronesus in the Province

of Crete. He was one of the Synodal summoners of Nes-
torius as we see by page 45, volume I of "Ephesus.".

12. Paul, Bishop of the city of Eampe in the Province of Crete.

13. Zenobius, Bishop of the city of Gnossus in the Province of

Crete.

14. Theodore, Bishop of Dodone in Old Epirus.

15. Secundiamis, Bishop of Lamia in the Province of Thessaly, as

on page 137, volume I of "Ephesus."



64 BisJiops present in the Synod.

16. Dio7i, Bishop of Thebes in Thessaly,

17. Theodore, Bishop of Echinaeus in Thessaly. This name is

written Theodosius on page 138, volume I of "Ephesus."

From the Diocese of Dacia,

where, according to Bingham, Book IX, chap. I, sec. 6, the
Exarch was perhaps first at Sardica, afterwards at Acrida or Jus-
tiniana Prima, erected by Justinian, came the following:
1. Senecio, (or Senecion), Bishop of Codra, or Scodra, (in Prae-

valitana, and Metropolitan?) On page 145, volume I of

"Ephesus" in this set it is written Cordia.

From the Autocephalous,
that is independent Province of CYPRUS, came the following:

1. Rhegmus,'5>'\^o^ oi the city of Constantia, and Metropolitan.

2. Sapricucs, Bishop of Paphos. The list on pages 22-30 id.,

adds "in Cyprus:" see on page 26 there."

3. Ze7io, Bishop of Curium in Cyprus.

4. Evagrius, Bishop of Solia or Soli in Cyprus.

Sees Whose Provinces Are Unknown.

1. Caesarius, Chorepiscopus of the city Alee. It occurs after a
Cyprian see and before the name of a Hellespontan see.
Bingham gives an Area in Armenia, and an Area or Arcae
in Phoenicia Prima. Smith's "Dictionary of Greek and
Roman Biography" gives not Alee. It gives Area, in
Greek "A/)x>j, which it places in Phoenicia. The margin of
Hardouin's "Concilia," tome I, column 1425, has Alee.
In the first list on page 26, volume I of "Ephesus," the
name of his see is not given. The signature there is merely
*'Caesarius, a Chorepiscopus." It occurs there just after
four Cyprus sees and just before a Paphlagonian see, that is
it comes between "Evagrius of Soli" in Cyprus and "Tribo-
nianus of Aspendus in Pamphylia." And in Act VI it is
found in exactly the same place, but the name of the see or

locality where he operated is given differently and the spell-
ing of the two other sees varies from that given on page 26,
volume I of "Ephesus." I give the three in the order and
form in which they occur at the end of chapter VI of "Ephe-
sus:" Evagrius of Solona; Caesarius, Country Bishop of
Arcesena; Tribonianus of Aspenda in Pamphylia. From
this I have been inclined to surmise that Caesarius' see may
have been in Cyprus, but do not feel sure. Or was it in
Paphlagonia, or elsewhere? On the Chorepiscopus and his
powers and functions, see "Chorepiscopus" in Bingham's
Index. Canon I^VII of the Lo,cal Council of I^aodica for-
bids them for its jurisdiction. And yet we see Caesarius in
A. D. 431 , voting as such in the Third Ecumenical Council.
According to Gregory of Nazianzus, Basil, Bishop of Cae-
sarea in Cappadocia, had fifty Chorepiscopi, that is Country
Bishops, under him, but it does not appear that any or every
one of them had a see: see Bingham, book IX, chapter 3,
section 2.
Philadelphitis , Bishop of the Gratianopolitans. Bingham gives
only one Gratianopolis, the present Grenoble in France.
But it does not appear that any Gallic Bishop was present.
Smith's "Dictionary of Greek and Latip Geography" gives
that Gratianopolis only. Wiltsch gives another see of the
same name which was in Mauritiana Caesariensis in Latin
Africa, but the letter of Capreolus of Carthage shows that
the African Synod had sent no Prelate to the Synod. Har-
douin's margin, col. 1427, tome I, here tells us that Merca-
tor has Trajanopolis instead of Gratianopolis. The only
see of Trajanopolis mentioned in Bingham's list was in the
Province of Rhodope in the Diocese of Thrace. I do not
find any Pliiladelphius in the list in Act VI of this Council.
It may well be that there were two or more cities named
after the Emperor Gratian, though we may not be able to
locate more than one. And we must not suppose that we
know either the names or the localities of all the ancient
sees. It has been computed by one that at about this time
there were about 1 800 Bishops in the world, for the episco-



66 Bishops present in the Syjiod.

pates were often of small extent, as Bingham shows. The
two sees which occur next in the signatures at the end of
Act I of Ephesus, are found next after the names of sees
attached to Palestine, and just before those of Egypt: which
might lead us to deem it not unlikely that they belonged
either to the jurisdiction of Jerusalem or else to that of
Alexandria. But as tliat is not clearly prov^en I put them
here. They are as follows:

3. Serenianus, Bishop of the city of the Myrians. Was this city

Myra in Eycia? Or was it Myrum or Merum in Phrygia or
was it Myrum in thfe Second Palestine? Wiltsch, note 17,
page 224 of his volume I, makes the Bishop of this last to
have been at the Council of Ephesus, A. D. 431. Smith's
Dictionary gives Myra in Lycia, but no Myrum nor Myrium.
But among the subscriptions at the end of Act VI of Ephe-
sus is found "Herennianus, Bishop of Myra," which is
probably, with an error in spelling, the same as "Serenni-
anus. Bishop of the city of the Myrians" above, and the see
was therefore Myra in Eycia. See page 226, volume II of
"Ephesus" in this set. On page 224, note 17, vol. I of
his work, "Wiltsch speaks of "The first and last Bishop
of. the unkndwn Myrum at the Council of Ephesus in 431."
No Serennianus is found at the end of Act VI, which
strengthens the view that Herennianus is the same.

4. Cyril, Bishop of Pylae. As Pylae (nv/^.a: in Greek) means

"Gates," and hence a Pass through a mountain chain, it
is therefore applied to many places. What particular
place is here meant is not evident therefore from "Pylae"
alone. For there was a Pylae in Greece, another in Cili-
cia, and a third between Syria and Cilicia. Smith's Dic-
tionary mentions them. In Hardouin's margin here we
find the addition "in the Chersonesus," which is in the
list on page 24, volume I of "Ephesus." where the sub-
scription is "Cyril of Pyli," [or "of Pylae"] "in the Cher-
sonesus." This therefore is correct, the pronunciation of
the Ei (-^0 a-^^ ^^^^ I^^^ C'^"') in Greek in modern times, as



Bishops p7'escnt in the Synod. 67



well probably as in the fifth century, not being very
widely distinct, and, if read for a copyist to write, easily
mistaken one for another.

5. ''Philip, Bishop of Amazon in Caria," is found on page 144,
vol. I of "Ephesus." Among the subscriptions at the end
of Act VI it is "Philip." But in the subscriptions at the
end of Act I, page 492, id,, we read instead, "Philetus, the
least. Bishop of Amyzon." And so it is at the end of Act
VI, page 228, vol. II of "Ephesus." There is here evi-
dently a mistake, probably a copyist's or secretary's, of one
name for another. Which of the two was the right name I
know not.

Hefele in his "History of the Church Councils, vol. Ill, page
46, states that "sixty-eight Asiatic Bishops . . . in a letter to Cyril
and Juvenal, had requested that they would be pleased to defer the
opening of the Synod until the arrival of bishops from Antioch."
The above document with its names is from the "Synodicon" of
Monte Casino. The whole of it is in Hardouin in Eatin only.
One of the reasons urged by those sixty-eight Prelates for defer-
ring the opening of the Council till the arrival of John of Antioch
is that "some of the Western Bishops also will be present at the
Synod." The Protest is vehement against the action of St. Cyril
and the Bishops in opening the Council. Yet some of those who
signed it may not have been Nestorian in doctrine, but merely
misled into siding with the Nestorian demand for further delay,
though the Council waited indulgently fifteen days beyond the time
set in the Imperial Decree which summoned the Council.

On the same page he adds that twenty of those sixty-eight
went over to the side of the Orthodox Council, and that their
names are subscribed to the deposition of Nestorius at the end of
its Act I. See Hardowin's "Concilia," tome I, page 1350, com-
pared with page 1423; and Mansi's "Concilia," tome V, pages
765, 766 compared with tome IV, page 1211, and after. Their
names are as follows: I put in capitals those who went over to the
Orthodox Synod, whose names are subscribed to the condemnation
of Nestorius at the end of its Act I. Such of the eleven Bishops

as subscribed the protest against the deposition of Nestorius, and
are found also among the forty-three, who deposed Cyril and Mem-
non and excommunicated the Orthodox Council are put in italics.
The others of the forty-three are in Roman.

The names of the sixty-eight who subscribed the Protest
aforesaid as in Hardouin's "Concilia," tome I, columns 1350-1352,
are as follows: They are in I^atin only in Hardouin.

1 . Tranquillinus, Bishop of Antioch in Pisidia.

ginal note on Dinela in Hardouin here tells us that it is a
