Epiphanius fourteenth bishop and fifth patriarcha OF CONSTANTINOPLE, A.D. 520-535, seems to have been a quiet and prudent person, well fitted for that violent age, when the great popular sedition occurred in that city (A.D. 531), and when the emperors prescribed the policy of the Church. His letters to pope Hormisdas are extant, also the sentence of the court which he held against Severus and Peter (Migne, Patrol. Graec. 36:783 sq.).
