Anastasius Bishop of Nicea (1)
Anastasius Bishop Of Nicea (1), was present at the Council of Chalcedon, A.D. 451. Not having arrived, he was represented in the earlier sessions by two presbyters, but later he appeared and subscribed in person. At the thirteenth session he was charged by Eunomius of Nicomedia with invading his metropolitan rights over the churches of Bithynia; and the decision was given against him. The bishop of Nicsea was henceforth to retain the title without exercising the jurisdiction of a metropolitan.
