Book of Saints – James of Nisibi


(Saint) Bishop (July 15) (4th century) One of the Fathers of the Council of Nicaea (A.D. 325). He was celebrated for his learning and for the gift of miracles which Almighty God had bestowed upon him. He was a strenuous upholder of the Orthodox Faith against the Arians. A Syrian by birth, he became Bishop of Nisibi in Mesopotamia. He had been imprisoned in his youth as a Christian under Galerius, colleague of Diocletian, early in the fourth century; but survived through a long and useful Episcopate, passing to his reward in a good old age, A.D. 350.
