The Monk Eulogios, Archbishop of Alexandria

Commemorated on February 13

      The Monk Eulogios, Archbishop of Alexandria, was one of the enlightened and active hierarchs of the VI Century. At first he was hegumen of the Justinian Mother of God monastery in Antioch, and then he was chosen to the cathedra-chair of the city of Alexandria, where he served for 27 years. During all his years the saint struggled incessantly against various heresies. His activity is known of through his letters to Sainted Gregory Dialogus, an highly esteemed monk and pope.
      The Monk Eulogios died in either the year 607 or 608. His writings are preserved particularly in quotations by Patriarch Photios, and they reveal an Orthodox teaching about the natures of our Lord Jesus Christ, and are directed against heresies of the time of Saint Eulogios. In complete form there has reached us only one of his sermons for Palm Sunday.
