Patriarch Timothy

d.517. Monophysite patriarch of Constantinople. Appointed by Emperor Anastasius I when the Chalcedonian patriarch Macedonius II was deposed (c.511-12), he was previously in charge of the cathedral ornaments of Constantinople. After some initial hesitation he became a leading exponent of Monophysitism.* In 512 he was involved in Severus's* attempt to introduce the Theopaschite* formula, “who was crucified for us,” to the Trisagion, which provoked a riot. He formally condemned the Chalcedonian doctrine at a synod in 515, continuing to work with Severus, now bishop of Antioch. Theodore the Lector* ascribed to him the regular use of the Nicene Creed* in the liturgy of Constantinople; it had probably been introduced earlier at Antioch by Peter the Fuller.*
