Hypatius of Gangra

Resource Toolbox

a distinguished member of the Council of Nice, of whose life but little is known, was stoned to death March 31, 327, in a pass near Gangra, by a gang of Novatian ruffians, in all probability on account of the opposition which he had manifested towards the Novatians (q.v.) at the council. See Stanley, History of the Eastern Church, p. 266.
