A Dictionary of Greek and Roman biography and mythology (ed. William Smith), Hesy'chius HIEROSOLYMITANUS (search)
r intimations, Miraeus (Auctarium de Scriptor. Eccles. No. clxxv.), Possevinus (Apparatus Sacer, vol. i. p. 739, ed. Col. 1608 ), Cave, and Thorschmidt (Comment. de Hesychio Milesio), consider Hesychius the writer to be identical with the Isysius or Isacius (*)Isa/kios), bishop or patriarch of Jerusalem, to whom pope Gregory the Great wrote an epistle (Epistol. 11.40.; Opera, vol. ii. col. 1133, ed. Benedict.), and whose death occurred, according to the Alexandrian or Paschal chronicle, in A. D. 609. (Chron. Pasch. p. 382, ed. Paris, vol. i. p. 699, ed. Bonn.) But the absence of any higher designation than presbyter in Photius and Theophanes forbid the supposition that their Hesychius ever attained episcopal rank; and the want of any distinguishing epithet leads us to conclude that there was no other Hesychius of Jerusalem who had acquired distinction as a writer.

Works Epistola ad Caesarium Gardiner, bishop of Winchester, ascribed to Joannes Eleemosynarius the celebrated Epistola ad Caesarium, which is by most Protestant critics, and by some Roman Catholics, ascribed to Chrysostom; and which is appealed to as containing a clear declaration against the doctrine of transubstantiation. Accounts of his Life Life by Joannes Moschus The eminence of Joannes is evidenced by the fact that three biographical accounts of him were written; one, not now extant, by Joannes Moschus [MOSCHUS] and Sophronius. Life by Leontius, bishop of Neapolis in Cyprus A second life is by Leontius, bishop of Neapolis in Cyprus, of which a Latin version, made in the ninth century by Anastasius Bibliothecarius, h
Theodo'rus 4. Of ALEXANDRIA (1, 2). There were two patriarchs of Alexandria of the name of Theodore : one surnamed Scribo (*Skri/bwn), a Melchite, or of the orthodox Greek Church, who, after a patriarchate of two years, perished apparently in the troubles occasioned by the revolt of Egypt and Africa against the usurper Phocas, A. D. 609; the other, a Jacobite, who was patriarch from A. D. 727 to 738. (Le Quien, Oriens Christianus, vol. ii. col. 445, 457.)
