EULALIUS

Archdeacon of the Church of Rome, perhaps a native of Greece. Upon Zosimus’s death 27 December 418 he was elected bishop in the Lateran basilica by a small group of Roman deacons in opposition to Boniface, and like him was consecrated on the following Sunday 29 December. While each believed himself to be the legitimate pontiff, a series of conflicts disturbed the public order. Thus in 419 the emperor Honorius, seeking to end the schism and the many resulting disorders, convened a council at Ravenna, but without result. Only in the face of Eulalius’s complete insubordination against Achilleus of Spoleto, chosen in the interim to celebrate the Easter rites at Rome, was Boniface recognized as legitimate. On 7 April Honorius communicated the resolution of the events at Rome to the proconsul of Africa Largo. Eulalius, initially supported by the prefect Symmachus and by the imperial power generally, after 419 was relegated to Campania, where he died in 423. EULALIUS of Antioch d. 331. Bishop of Antioch for a few months, in the context of the disorders that accompanied and followed the deposition of Eustathius in 327. Eulalias succeeded Paulinus of Tyre d. 330, who was elected to replace Eustathius and himself remained in office only a few months. Eulalius was succeeded by Euphronius.
