Image of St. Alexander of Constantinople

Bishop and apostle against Arianism. He was elected the bishop of Byzantium in 317, at age seventy-three. Alexander was well known for his wisdom and holiness. He attended the Council of Nicaea in 325 and joined St. Alexander of Alexandria in condemning Arius and his heretical teachings. In 336, Arius was sponsored by Emperor Constantine the Great to be received into the Church. Alexander, unable to be a party to such a disastrous enterprise, prayed that either he or Arius be removed from the scene. Arius died the day before Alexander was to be exonerated in the court of Constantinople.
