(10) bishop of Melitene and metropolitan of Armenia, cir. A.D. 564, was a well-read scholar, and an eminent saint. He was a relative of the emperor (Maurice), and one of his principal officers. After he had become a widower he consecrated himself to the service of God, and was raised to the see of Melitene, a city of Armenia. In 589, Maurice sent him to Chosroes II, king of Persia, who was dethroned by his subjects. Domitianus assisted the defeated monarch with his counsels, and did not neglect anything to convert him, but without success, so that finally he wrote about him to pope Gregory. Domitianus came back to Constantinople, where Maurice kept him near, as his advisor and minister, assigning him even the guardianship of his children, but the prelate died before the emperor, in 602. The body of Domitianus was transferred to Melitene, and as Theophylact says, "God attested his holiness by various mircales." He is commemorated January 10.
