Hermit, called "the Scholar of Christ." He was born in Phrygia, and became a monk. Hypatius had a vision that sent him to Thrace where he became a hermit with a man named Jonas. The two then went to Constantinople and Chalcedon. A foe of Nestorianism, he sheltered St. Alexander Akimetes and others at his hermitage near Chalcedon when their lives were threatened by the heretics. Hypatius is credited with halting a revival of the Olympic games because of their pagan origins. He died at the age of eighty and was known for miracles and prophecies.
