, , 1876 - 1942
Greek orthodox Archbishop of Norht and South America



Heraclianus, (Erakleianos), bishop of Chalcedon, an ecclesiastical writer of uncertain date. He wrote a work against the Manichaeans, in twenty books, Kara Manichaion en biblioir k. Photius, from whom alone we learn any thing of the work and its author, describes it as written in a concise and elevated, yet perspicuous, style. It was addressed to one Achillius (Achillior), at whose request it was written; and was designed to refute the so-called Gospel (enangelion) of the Manichaeans, and the Giganteior Biblur, and the Thesauroi, works of note among the members of that sect. (Phot. Bibl. Codd. 85, 231; Cave, Hist. Litt. vol. i., ed. Oxon. 1740-43; Fabric. Bibl. Gr. vol. x.)
