Anastasius abbot of the monastery OF ST. EUTHYMIUS, in Palestine, about 740. In the year 749 St. John Damascenus wrote against his error on the subject of the Trisagion, which he referred to the Son alone. The treatise against the Jews given by Canisius in his Antiquitates (III, 1, 123, and contained in vol. 13 of the Bibl. Patrum) is attributed to this writer, but erroneously, since the writer speaks of a space of eight hundred years having elapsed since the destruction of Jerusalem. Ceillier, however, who attributes the work to this Anastasius, makes him to have lived in the 9th century. See Cave, Hist. Lit. 1, 628.
