Protogenes was a priest of Edessa (Urfa, Turkey) who suffered exile together with another priest, (Saint) Eulogius. The two were banished to Antinoe (Isna), Egypt by the Roman emperor Valens (364-378), who was an adherent of the Arian heresy that denied the divinity of Christ. During this exile, Protogenes founded a school in Egypt. Valens' successor, Theodosius I (379-395), recalled from exile both Eulogius and Protogenes, with the latter becoming bishop of Carrhae, Mesopotamia (Harran, Turkey). Eulogius became bishop of Edessa.

Deacon Keith Fournier Today, we humbly ask you to defend Catholic Online's independence. 98% of our readers don't give; they simply look the other way. If you donate just $5.00, or whatever you can, Catholic Online could keep thriving for years. Most people donate because Catholic Online is useful. If Catholic Online has given you $5.00 worth of knowledge this year, take a minute to donate. Show the volunteers who bring you reliable, Catholic information that their work matters. If you are one of our rare donors, you have our gratitude and we warmly thank you. Help us do more >
