Cyril of Alexandria

Cyril of Alexandria (AD 376 - 444) was a participant in the First Council of Ephesus in 431 and also served as Pope of Alexandria from 412 - 444. He has been called “Pillar of Faith” and “Seal of the Fathers” by his fans and a “heretic” and “monster” by his foes.

The Roman Catholic Church calendar, the Coptic Church calendar, the Lutheran calendar, and the Eastern Orthodox Church calendar all commemorate his death.
