Headword: Σευῆρος
Adler number: sigma,271
Translated headword: Severus [of Antioch]
Vetting Status: high
This man appeared after the unlucky Eutyches;[1] [it was he] who after seizing the [episcopal] throne of Antioch tried to vindicate the heresy of Mani[2] and Apollinarius[3] and Eutyches, disrupting, as far as he was able, the peace of the Church. But when he was expelled from Antioch for being troublesome and turbulent, he fell like a tempest or a hurricane on the frivolity of the Alexandrians.[4] Then when another gale blew up against him and the people, he threw everything into confusion and uproar. For a certain man called Julian, a Halicarnassian, a bishop of Asia, scattered them.
See also under Julian of Halicarnassus.[5]
Greek Original:
Σευῆρος: οὗτος ἐφάνη μετὰ τὸν δυστυχῆ Εὐτυχῆ: ὃς ἁρπάσας τὸν θρόνον Ἀντιοχείας τὴν κατὰ Μάνεντα αὖθις Ἀπολινάριόν τε καὶ Εὐτυχέα διεκδικεῖν αἵρεσιν ἐπειρᾶτο, κυκῶν, ὅση δύναμις αὐτῷ, τὴν τῆς ἐκκλησίας εἰρήνην. ἐξελαθεὶς δὲ τῆς Ἀντιοχείας ὡς ταραχώδης καὶ ταραξίας τῇ Ἀλεξανδρέων κουφότητι λαίλαπος δίκην ἢ θυέλλης ἐνέσκηψεν, ἔνθα καὶ ἑτέρας καταιγίδος ἀντιπνευσάσης αὐτῷ τε καὶ τῷ λαῷ συνέχεε πάντα καὶ ἐθορύβησε. διεσκέδασε γὰρ αὐτοὺς Ἰουλιανός τις καλούμενος, Ἁλικαρνασεύς, τῆς Ἀσίας ἐπίσκοπος. καὶ ζήτει ἐν τῷ Ἰουλιανὸς Ἁλικαρνασεύς.
From George the Monk, Chronicon 472.24 - 473.8. A collection of Severus' letters may be found at web address 1.
[1] Eutyches: epsilon 3782 (a play on the meaning of his name, "lucky").
[2] Mani: mu 147.
[3] Apollinarius: alpha 3397, alpha 3398.
[4] This sentence is quoted again at tau 114. George's original has στασιώδης ('factious') rather than ταραχώδης ('trouble-making').
