Nectarius

d.397. Bishop of Constantinople from 381. Born at Tarsus, Cilicia, he was a jurist who rose to the office of praetor at Constantinople. When Gregory of Nazianzus resigned under pressure from the see of Constantinople, Emperor Theodosius I nominated Nectarius to succeed, despite the fact that he was entirely remote from church affairs and had not been baptized. He was baptized forthwith and unanimously elected and installed, and he took over from Gregory the presidency of the closing stages of the second ecumenical council (381). J. Kunze suggested that his formal profession of faith at the council in the words of the Niceno-Constantinopolitan Creed accounts for the association of that creed with the council.
