Anastasius the Sinaite (2)
Anastasius The Sinaite
the third of the name, patriarch of Antioch, was appointed to this see in 629 by the emperor Heraclius. He declared himself opposed to the Council of Chalcedon, and showed himself a partisan of the heretical doctrines of the Jacobites. He died in 649. He is probably the author of a Greek work on Heresies, which is found in MS. in the Imperial Library of Vienna. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
