Nectaria is the name of a celebrated deaconess in the early Christian Church. She flourished in the latter half of the 4th century, and was the cause of the deposition of a certain Elpidius by the synod of Rimini, as he had ordained her for an office of which she proved herself unworthy by breaches of confidence and perjury. See Sozomen, Historia Ecclesiastica, book 4, chapter 24.
