Comazon one of the first commission of nine appointed by Theodosius and Valentinian, A. D. 429, to compile the Theodosian Code,--a work which was carried into effect by a second commission of sixteen, consisting for the most part of new members, appointed A. D. 435. He was an exmagister scrinii in A. D. 429. (Cod. Theodos. tit. 50. §§ 5, 6.) [J.T.
Diodo'rus comes and magister scriniorum, one of the commissioners appointed by Theodosius the younger, in A. D. 435, to compile the Theodosian code. Theodosius originally intended that, as an historical monument for the use of the learned, there should be compiled a general code of constitutions, supplementary to the Gregorian and Hermogenian codes. These three codes taken together were intended to comprise all the general constitutions of the emperors, not such only as were in actual force, bthout admixture of the jus civile of the jurists, or, as an English lawyer would express it, which should exhibit a consolidation of the statutory, but not of the common or unwritten law. For the changed plan sixteen commissioners were named in A. D. 435, who were directed to dispose chronologically under the same title those constitutions, or parts of constitutions, which were connected in subject; and were empowered to remove what was superfluous, to add what was necessary, to change what was
Epige'nius comes et magister memioriae, one of the commission of sixteen, appointed by Theodosius in A. D. 435, to compile the Theodosian Code, and one of the eight who actually signalized themselves in its composition. [DIODORUS, vol. i. p. 1018.] [J.T.G]
Ero'tius vicarius and quaestor, one of the commission of Sixteen, appointed by Theodosius in A. D. 435, to compile the Theodosian Code. He does not appear, however, to have taken any distinguished part in its composition. [DIODORUS, vol. i. p. 1018.] [J.T.G]
Eubu'lus one of the commission of Nine appointed by Theodosius in A. D. 429 to compile a code upon a plan which was afterwards abandoned. He had before that date filled the office of magister scriniorum. In A. D. 435, he was named on the commission of Sixteen, which compiled the existing Theodosian code upon an altered plan. He then figures as comes and quaestor, with the titles illustris and magnificus. The emperor, however, in mentioning those who distinguished themselves in the composition of his code, does not signalize Eubulus. [DIODORUS, vol. i. p. 1018.] [J.T.G]
magistrate Hesychius, the correspondent of Libanius, may be the Hesychius or Esychius mentioned by Jerome (Epistola 33 (olim 101) ad Pammach. ; Opera, vol. iv. pt. ii. col. 249, ed. Benedictin.) as a man of consular rank, bitterly hated by the patriarch Gamaliel, and who was condemned to death by the emperor Theodosius for bribing a notary, and pillaging some of the imperial records. Fabricius understands the notice in Jerome of Hesychius, who was proconsul of Achaia, under Theodosius II. A. D. 435 (Cod. Theodos. 6. tit. 28.8); but this is not likely, for if the Benedictine editors are right in fixing A. D. 396 as the date of the letter to Pammachius, the Theodosius there mentioned must have been Theodosius I. the Great; and if Hesychius was executed (as Jerome seems to say)in his reign, he could not have been proconsul in the reign of his grandson Theodosius II. The Hesychius of the Codex Theodosianus may perhaps be the one mentioned in the letters of the monk Nilus, the pupil of Ch
reviously a count of the empire, was the representative of the emperor Theodosius at the council of Ephesus, where he took part with the Nestorians, A. D. 431. Immediately after the council, he hastened to Constantinople, in order to counteract the influence of the representatives of the party of Cyril on the emperor's mind. In this he succeeded for the time; but, after long vacillation, Theodosius at last declared himself against the Nestorians, and banished Irenaeus from his court, about A. D. 435. Irenaeus betook himself to his friends, the Oriental bishops, by whom he was made bishop of Tyre, A. D. 444. In an imperial decree against the Nestorians, which still exists, it is ordered that Irenaeus should be deposed from his bishopric, and deprived of his clerical character. The sentence was carried into effect in A. D. 448. Works Tragoedia seu Commentarii de Rebus in Synodo Ephesina ac in Oriente gestis In his retirement, Irenaeus wrote a history of the Nestorian struggle, unde
ut the court, he was ordered to retire to the monastery, apparently that of Euprepius, in the suburbs of Antioch, in which he had dwelt before his election to the patriarchate. Here he remained four years, being treated, according to his own statement (apud Evagr. H. E. 1.7), with kindness and respect. As, however, he persisted in maintaining his opinions, or as his opponents called it, his blasphemy, he was sentenced to perpetual banishment in the Greater Oasis in Upper Egypt, probably in A. D. 435; at the instigation of his former supporter, John of Antioch [Joannes, No. 9], who was aggravated by his persistence, and by that of a few of the bishops who adhered to him. [Meletius, No. 7.] In this remote and painful exile, his spirit remained unbroken. He wrote a work, addressed to some Egyptian, on the subject of his wrongs, and addressed various memorials to the governor of the Thebaid. After an interval of uncertain length, he was carried off by the Blemmyes, who ravaged the Oasis w

bout this time. It was in the time of Proclus that the custom of chanting the Trisagion was introduced into the church. While in office, Proclus conducted himself with great prudence and mildness. For further details respecting his ecclesiastical career, the reader is referred to Tillemont's Mémoires Ecclésiastigucs (vol. xiv. pp. 704-718). His extant writings are ennmerated by Fabricius (B. G. vol. ix. pp. 505-512). One of the most celebrated of his letters (peri\ pi/stews) was written in A. D. 435, when the bishops of Armenia applied to him for his opinion on certain propositions which had been disseminated in their dioceses, and were attributed to Theodorus of Mopsuestia. The discussion that ensued with respect to these propositions made a considerable stir in the East. Proclus bestowed a great deal of pains upon his style, which is terse and sententious, but is crowded with antitheses and rhetorical points, and betrays a laboured endeavour to reiterate the same sentiment in ever
