Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Nectarius (died 397 or 398) was the archbishop of Constantinople from AD 381 until his death, the successor to Saint Gregory Nazianzus.When Gregory resigned, Nectarius was praetor of Constantinople. An elderly man born at Tarsus in Cilicia of a noble family, he was widely known for his admirable character, but was still only a catechumen. Preparing for a journey to Tarsus, he called on the Bishop of Tarsus, Diodore, who was attending the First Council of Constantinople (one of the ecumenical councils), to ask if he could take letters for him; his appearance and manners struck Diodorus so forcibly that he at once determined that he should be advanced as a candidate for Bishop; making an excuse of attending to some other business, he took Nectarius to see the bishop of Antioch, who asked Nectarius to put off his journey a short time.
