Book of Saints – Flavian and Elias


(Saints) Bishops (July 4) (6th century) Saint Flavian, Patriarch of Antioch, and Saint Elias, Patriarch of Jerusalem, were exiled by the Emperor Anastasius (A.D. 491 to A.D. 518) for strenuously upholding the Decrees of the Council of Chalcedon, affirming the existence of the Two Natures in Jesus Christ, that is, the Nature of God and the Nature of Man. Saint Flavian died at Petra in Arabia (A.D. 512), and Saint Elias at Aila on the shores of the Red Sea (A.D. 513).
