Alexander Saint, Bishop of Constantinople

Resource Toolbox

is commemorated Aug. 28 (Latin) or 30 (Greek). He resolutely opposed the Arian heresy; and when Eusebius of Nicomedia insisted upon Arius being received into the Church of Constantinople, Alexander, in the deepest affliction, ordered public fasting and prayer to be made to God to avert it; and himself passed whole nights before the altar, with his face upon the ground. Arius died on the day before that fixed for his restoration. Alexander died in 340. Socrates, Hist. Eccl. 1, 37, 38; 2:6; Acta Sanctorum.
