Book of Saints – Anastasius the Younger


ANASTASIUS THE YOUNGER (Saint) Bishop Martyr (December 21) (7th century) The successor of another Saint Anastasius (April 21) in the See of Antioch. He devoted himself to the conversion of the Jews, numerous and influential at Antioch, and eventually was attacked by them and terribly injured. He died in consequence of the hurts he had received (A.D. 610). He is sometimes styled Saint Anastasius the Younger. To him is attributed a translation into Greek of the work of Saint Gregory the Great on the duties of a pastor of souls. There is also a treatise on Faith bearing his name as author.
