Paphnutius

d. c.360. Bishop of Upper Thebaid, Egypt. A monk, and disciple of Antony,* he was badly mutilated during the persecution of Maximin Daza (305-13), and Constantine is said to have kissed his seared eye before the Council of Nicea (325). According to Socrates and Sozomen he dissuaded that council from enforcing celibacy on the clergy. He supported Athanasius* at the Synod of Tyre (335), walking out in protest at the unjust proceedings.
