Philoxenus of Bagdad

Philoxenus Of Bagdad an Eastern prelate of some distinction as an author, also known as Lazarus Bar-Sapta, flourished in the early part of the 9th century as bishop of Bagdad. This episcopate was founded in 762, but Philoxenus is the first incumbent of whom we have any notice. His character seems to have been a questionable one, for in the year 829 he was deposed, on which he appealed to Alalmelon, the caliph, by whom the sentence was confirmed. Philoxenus is the author of a Syro-Jacobite liturgy, which is in nowise remarkable. See Neale, Hist. of the Eastern Church (Introd.), 1:329.
