AMPHILOCHIUS

AMPHILOCHIUS of Side d. 458. Bishop of Side or Sida in Pamphylia from at least 426458; participated in the Council of Ephesus 431, in which he caused some decrees against the Messalians to be issued. While he was clear on the condemnation of Nestorius, his position on the question of Eutyches wavered. Favorable toward Eutyches during the latrocinium of Ephesus of 449, he retracted his own ideas at the Council of Chalcedon 451. He wrote many letters, among them an Epistula ad Leonem Imperatorem PG 77, 1515-1516; PG 86, 1841b, to Leontius of Byzantium, of which we have only fragments, and in which he again changed his mind and described himself as against the Council of Chalcedon; translations are preserved in Syriac cited by Michael the Syrian, see J.-B. Chabot, Chronica minora, Paris 1901, vol. II, 145-148 and Ethiopian see H. Zotenberg, Notices et extraits des manuscrits de la Biblioth¨que Nationale, vol. 241, Paris 1893, 2 1935.Orthodox Saints.
