d.370. Bishop of Constantinople. Native of Cappadocia and an Arian, he became bishop of Germanicia and in 358 of Antioch (Constantius later denied his nomination of Eudoxius). His extreme views led to his deposition by the Council of Seleucia in 359, but with the adjustment of his declared views he was elected bishop of Constantinople in 360. Eudoxius declared then that the Father was impious and the Son pious, explaining to the angry assembly that the Son reverences the Father, but the Father has no one to reverence.
