(Saint) Abbot (November 12) (9th century) A monk of Constantinople, and afterwards Abbot of his monastery. He was a man of great learning and ability, and rendered important services to religion by manfully resisting the Iconoclast Emperors of Constantinople and the heretics they patronised. Four times in his life Saint Theodore was banished, and he ended his days in exile (A.D. 826), being then over eighty years of age. Several of the controversial works he wrote are still extant.
