retence of change of air and of procuring the cure of his wound, into the East, where he was made general of all the armies, with the power of appointing the provincial officers. Marsus, an Isaurian officer of reputation, who had first introduced Pamprepius to Illus, and the patrician Leontius, a Syrian, and an officer of reputation, either accompanied him or joined him in the East, and probably also his brother Trocondus. Having traversed Asia Minor they erected the standard of revolt \\ (A. D. 483 or 484). Illus declared Leontius emperor, defeated the army of Zeno near Antioch, and having drawn over the Isaurians to his party, and obtained possession of Papurius, released Verina, and induced her to crown Leontius at Tarsus, and to send a circular letter to the imperial officers at Antioch, in Egypt, and the East, by which they were prevailed on to join Illus. This important service did not, however, prevent Illus from sending Verina back to Papurius, where she soon after closed her

FLA'VIUS ANI'CIUS JUSTINIA'NUS I. or Justinianus Magnus or Justinian the Great surnamed MAGNUS, or THE GREAT, emperor of CONSTANTINOPLE and ROME from A. D. 527 to 565. His descent and family connections are given in the following genealogical table:-- The date of the birth of Justinian is fixed on the 11th of May, A. D. 483, in L' Art de Vérifier les Dates (vol. i. p. 409), where the question is critically investigated. His birthplace was the village of Tauresium, in the district of Bederiana, in Dardania, where he afterwards built the splendid city of Justiniana, on the site of which stands the modern town of Kostendil. (See D'Anville, Mémoire sur deux villes qui ont porté le nom de Justiniana, in the 31 st vol. of Mémoires de l'Académie des Inscriptions et Belles Lettres.) At an early age Justinian went to Constantinople, where his uncle Justin, who had risen to high military honours, took care of his education and advancement. During some time he lived as an hostage at the
Justi'nus 3. Of SICILY, bishop of one of the sees in that island in the latter part of the fifth century. He was present at a council held at Rome A. D. 483 or 484, under Pope Felix III., in which Petrus Fullo *Gnafeu\s), or Peter the Fuller, patriarch of Antioch, was condemned as a heretic, for having added to the " trisagion" the heretical words " who suffered for us." Several bishops, among whom was Justin, desirous of recalling Peter from his errors, addressed letters to him. Letter of Peter Fuller to Justinus Editions The letter of Peter, in the original Greek, with a Latin version, Epistola Justini Episcopi in Sicilia, ad Petrum Fullone s. Cnapheum, is given in the Concilia (vol. iv. col. 1103, &c., ed. Labbe; vol. ii. col. 839, ed. Hardouin; vol. vii. col. 1115, ed. Mansi.) The genuineness of this letter, and of six others of similar character, from various Eastern or Western bishops, which are also given in the Concilia, is disputed by Valesius (Observat. Eccles. ad Ev
ch Peter, whose age and misfortunes appear to have ahated the fierceness of his party spirit, was ready to adopt. He consequently subscribed the Henoticon of the cmperor, and readmitted the Proterian party to communion on their doing the same. John of Tabenna had meanwhile fled to Rome, where the pole Simplicius, who, with the Western Church, steadily supported the Council of Chalcedon, embraced his cause, and wrote to the emperor in his behalf. Felix II. or III., who succeeded Simplicius (A. D. 483) was equally zealous on the same side. Peter had some difficulty in maintaining his position. In order to recover the favour of his Monophysite friends, whom his subservience to Zeno's policy had alienated, he anathematized the Council of Chalcedon; and then, to avert the displeasure of Acacius of Constantinople and of the Court, to whose temlporizing course this decisive step was adverse, he denied that he had done so. Evagrius> (H. E. 3.17) has preserved the letter he wrote to Acacius o

es, and returned to his monastery. After a time he accompanied Euthymius into the wilderness of Ruba, near the Jordan, and then into the wilderness south of the Dead Sea, and appears to have been present with him at his death, in or about A. D. 573. After the death of this eminent person, Saba withdrew altogether from his monastery into the wilderness near the Jordan; and from thence removed to a cave near "the brook that flows from the fountain of Siloam," where in his forty-fifth year (A. D. 483 or 484) he began to form a community from those who now resorted to him, and founded the "Laura" or monastery, known afterwards as Magna Laura, the inmates of which soon amounted to a hundred and fifty. In his fifty-third year, A. D. 491 or 492 (Cyrill. Scythop. Sabae Vita, 100.19), not his forty-fifth, as Cave affirms, he received ordination as presbyter. He was the founder of some other monastic societies beside that of Magna Laura; and was appointed by the Patriarch of Jerusalem archima
