d. AFTER 394. Bishop of Iconium. A lawyer at Constantinople, he became bishop in 373 at the instigation of his friend Basil (the Great)* of Caesarea. Associated also with and , he affirmed the Cappadocian Trinitarian model of one substance and three modes of existence or relation. His Christology held fast, without change or confusion in either, both a divinity consubstantial with that of the Father and a humanity preserving free will. The surviving remains of his large literary output reveal wide interests. They are (1) thirty-three Laudi ad Seleucum on devout living and successful study, a list of biblical books putting the Apocalypse outside the canon; (2) eight sermons on church feasts and texts of Scripture; (3) a Coptic treatise against the Apotactites and Gemellites, hyperascetic sects which, in addition to the Arians and Messalians, Amphilochius opposed vigorously.
