Bishop of Ancyra

ATHANASIUS of Ancyra d. 369370. Succeeded Basil in 360 as bishop of Ancyra and leader of the homoiousian party. Elected by the Council of Constantinople and consecrated by Acacius of Caesarea in Palestine, his origins were suspect. He was represented at the Council of Antioch 363 and took part in that of Tyana 367. Nevertheless Basil the Great tried to effect a reconciliation with him and with his father, a rhetor of some authority Ep. 24- 25; at his death 369, or soon after 370 Basil wrote a rather conventional eulogy of him Ep. 29. Gregory of Nyssa C. Eun. I, 37 praises his love of truth and uses his testimony against Aetius.Hieromartyr Clement the Bishop of Ancyra – Orthodox Church in America travelquaz
