Book of Saints – Alexander – 26 February

[Saint Alexander of Alexandria]Article

ALEXANDER (Saint) Bishop (February 26) (4th century) The successor of Saint Achillas in the Patriarchal See of Alexandria, and a champion of the Faith against the heretic Arius. To his influence over the Emperor Constantino are due in great part the facilities which that monarch afforded to the Bishops for their gathering at the memorable Council of Nicaea (A.D. 325). Saint Achillas died in the following year.
