Basil of Ancyra (2)
Basil Of Ancyra (2)
attended the second Council of Nicaea (the so-called seventh General Council), A.D. 787. At the first session Basil read a lengthy apology for the tardiness of his arrival, and, abjuring the heresy as to image-worship which he had previously favored, expressed his acquiescence in the decision of Hadrian of Rome, Tarasius of Constantinople, and the holy apostolic thrones; and signed the decrees of the council. See Labbe, Concil. 7:670, 887.
