Anastasia

(1) Daughter of Constantius Chlorus (293- 306), father of the sole emperor, Constantine. Her name, based on the Greek for “resurrection,” is paralleled elsewhere in the late third century only among Jews and Christians, and therefore she is regarded generally as evidence of Christian influence within the home of Constantius.

(2) The name given to an oratory by Gregory of Nazianzus after his translation to the see of Constantinople in 379, to mark the resurrection of the Nicene faith after the supremacy of Arianism from 360 onwards.

(3) A fourth-century saint apparently martyred at Sirmium in Pannonia.
