Proch'orus (Πρόχορος), one of the seven deacons, being the third on the list, and named next after Stephen and Philip (Ac 6:5), A.D. 30. No further mention of him is made in the N.T. There is a tradition that he was consecrated by St. Peter bishop of Nicomedia (Baron. 1, 292). In the Magna Bibliotheca Patrum (Colon. Agripp. 1618, 1, 49-69) will be found a fabulous "Historia Prochori, Christi Discipuli, de Vita B. Joannis Apostoli."
