Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Gelasius of Caesarea (died 395) was bishop of Caesarea Maritima from 367 to 373 and from 379 to his death. He was also an author, though none of his work survives. Gelasius participated in the First Council of Constantinople in 381. He was forced to surrender his position as bishop to the semi-Arianist Euzoius between the years of 373 and 379, because in matters of Christology he was a staunch Nicaean. According to Jerome, his writing was careful and polished, though he never published what he wrote. However, in the fifth century Socrates Scholasticus cites some of his works, and it seems that he wrote a sequence to Eusebius' Church History, preserved in the first fifteen chapter's of Rufinus' tenth book added to Eusebius' history, which includes the legend of Helena's discovery of the True Cross. Gelasius was nephew to Cyril of Jerusalem, the most vigorous advocate for Jerusalem in the later fourth century, and at whose deathbed request Gelasius wrote his history.show more
