5. Of ALEXANDRIA (3). Theodore, a deacon, of the church at Alexandria.


Λίβελλος, against the patriarch of Alexandria

At the Council of Chalcedon, A. D. 451, he presented a Λίβελλος, Libellus, against the patriarch of Alexandria, Dioscorus, charging him with having grievously oppressed him (Theodore), on account of the regard in which he had been held by Cyril, the predecessor of Dioscorus.


The document is given in the various editions of the Concilia (e. g. vol. iv. col. 395, ed. Labbe, vol. ii. col. 32,1, ed. Hardouin), in the Acta Concilii Chalcedonensis, actio iii.
