Athanasius, Bishop of Perrha

Athanasius, Bishop Of Perrha, known to us in connection with Domnus II, bishop of Antioch, in the middle of the 5th century. He was present at the first Council of Ephesus, supported Cyril of Alexandria, and signed with him. Having had grave charges brought against him by his clergy, he refused to meet them when summoned by his metropolitan Panolbius of Hierapolis, and voluntarily resigned his see. Domnus summoned a council to consider the matter; but Athanasius refused to appear, on the ground that Domnus was his personal enemy, and he was unanimously condemned by default and deposed from his bishopric. See Cave Hist. Lit. i, 479; Labbb, Concil. 4:717754.
