Baroes was bishop of Edessa, to which see he was translated from Haran by the emperor Constantius, A.D. 361. Sozomen, however, states that Baroes (together with Eulogius) was not consecrated to any definite see, but was raised to the episcopate while he remained in his monastery, as a token of honor for his services to the Church — Baroes was banished by the Arian Valens to Egypt — first, to the island of Aradus; then, with the view of checking the crowds that flocked to the holy confessor, to Oxyrynchus, in the Thebaid; and finally to a fortress named Philae, on the barbarian frontier, where he died in extreme old age, A.D. 378, the same year in which his persecutor died, in or after the disastrous battle of Adrianople. His name stands iln the Martyrologium Romanum on Jan. 30.
