Antipatros, Patros, Sosipatros (W3)

"Patros" ist der Genitiv von griech. "pater" = "Vater".

"Antipatros" war ein makedonischer Feldherr (-398- -319) unter Alexander dem Großen. Dem Namen nach war er also gegen seinen Vater eingestellt. Er konnte aber auch auf die Herkunft aus der Stadt "Antipatria" in Makedonien hindeuten.

Bei Wikipedia findet man: "Antipas" = "wie sein Vater". Vielleicht wird griech. "anti" hier nicht mit "gegen etwas gerichtet sein" übersetzt sondern mit "auf etwas gerichtet sein" übersetzt?

"Sosipatros", "Sosipater" ist unklar. Zu finden ist "Sosia", "Sosias" als griechisch-römischer Sklavenname und "Sosius" als römischem Name eines Geschlechts (Gentilname).

In einer Quelle wird der Name mit "der den Vater verteidigt" erklärt.

(E?)(L?) http://looklex.com/e.o/nicephorus1.htm

Nicephorus 1: (?-811) Byzantine emperor 802-811.
Nicephorus introduced several reforms, created new themes in the Balkans and resettled Anatolian populations there.
His reforms to strengthen the military made him introduce very unpopular fiscal politics, with heavy taxation and frequent confiscations of property. This alienated both the population and the clergy.
Nicephorus line in the big matter of his days, the question of use of icons, was close to the middle between extremes, and he permitted the veneration of icons. He exercised strong control of the church, and forced it to declare that the emperor was free from the laws of the church.

BIOGRAPHY

(E?)(L1) http://looklex.com/e.o/nicephorus2.htm

Nicephorus 2: Nicephorus Phocas, Greek: Nikephoros Phokas
(912-969) Byzantine emperor 963-969, more than 6 years.
Nicephorus was a very effective military leader, but as emperor, he proved more to be an instrument of the interest of others, than a real leader. It appears that Nicephorus truly and honestly was concerned about the interests of the state and his subjects. But gradually, he realized that his advisors had different interests. Attempting to remove these, he only achieved to isolate himself, and these efforts eventually led to the point where his former friends and his wife had him killed. On his tomb it is engraved: "You conquered all but a woman."

Nicephorus Blemmida (BLEMMYDES)
A learned monk and writer of the Green Church, b. about 1198, at Constantinople; d. 1272. After the establishment of the Latin Empire (1204) his family emigrated to Asia Minor. Blemmida there received a careful training and was soon reputed one of the most learned men of his time. About 1223 he became one of the Byzantine clergy, at that time established in Nicaea. But owing to difficulties and jealousies he renounced all worldly prospects, became a monk, and built a monas=tery near Ephesus, over which he presided until his death. In this condition he felt free from all entanglements and on various occasions exhibited independence and courage. At one time he dismissed from the church of his monas=tery the Princess Marcesina, a mistress of the Emperor John Ducas Batatzes (1222-54), and in justification of his conduct wrote an encyclical letter. Again, when the patriarch Joseph of Constantinople (1268-75) sought to obtain recognition against the former Patriarch Arsenius (1255-66), he met with a straight refusal from Blemmida. Nevertheless Blemmida was held in high esteem by the contemporary Greek Emperors. The aforementioned John Ducas, far from venting his wrath on him, accepted the rebuke as well merited. When the Patriarchal See of Constantinople fell vacant, in 1255, it was offered to Blemmida by Emperor Theodore II, Lascaris (1254-58); but he preferred his quiet monastic life.
...
Most of the works of Blemmida so far published are found in Migne's "Patrologia Graeca", CXLII (Paris, 1855), or in the 'Bibliotheca Teubneriana" (Leipzig, 1896).

Nicephorus, Saint - Patriarch of Constantinople (758-829)

St. Nicephorus

Patriarch of Constantinople, 806-815, b. about 758; d. 2 June, 829. This champion of the orthodox view in the second contest over the veneration of images belonged to a noted family of Constantinople. He was the son of the imperial secretary Theodore and his pious wife Eudoxia. Eudoxia was a strict adherent of the Church and Theodore had been banished by the Emperor Constantine Copronymus (741-75) on account of his steadfast support of the teaching of the Church concerning images. While still young Nicephorus was brought to the court, where he became an imperial secretary. With two other officials of high rank he represented the Empress Irene in 787 at the Second Council of Nicaea (the Seventh Ecumenical Council), which declared the doctrine of the Church respecting images. Shortly after this Nicephorus sought solitude on the Thracian Bosporus, where he had founded a monas=tery. There he devoted himself to ascetic practices and to the study both of secular learning, as grammar, mathematics, and philosophy, and the Scriptures. Later he was recalled to the capital and given charge of the great hospital. Upon the death of Patriarch Tarasius (25 February, 806), there was great division among the clergy and higher court officials as to the choice of his February, 806); there was great division among the clergy and higher court officials as to the choice of his successor. Finally, with the assent of the bishops Emperor Nicephorus (802-11) appointed Nicephorus as patriarch. Although still a layman, he was known by all to be very religious and highly educated. He received Holy Orders and was consecrated bishop on Easter Sunday, 12 April 806. The direct elevation of a Iayman to the patriarchate, as had already happened in the case of Tarasius, aroused opposition in the ecclesiastical party among the clergy and monks. The leaders were the abbots, Plato of Saccadium and Theodore of Studium, and Theodore's brother, Archbishop Joseph of Thessalonica. For this opposition the Abbot Plato was imprisoned for twenty-four days at the command of the emperor.
...
In 874 his bones were translated to Constantinople with much pomp by the Patriarch Methodius and interred, 13 March, in the Church of the Apostles. His feast is celebrated on this day both in the Greek and Roman Churches; the Greeks also observe 2 June as the day of his death.

Salaminius (W3)

Zum Namen des kirchlichen Historikers "Salaminius Hermias Sozomen", (gestorben 447 or 448), gibt es nur vage Hinweise. Möglicherweise hat er den Namen "Salaminius" zu Ehren eines "Salamanus" zusätzlich angenommen.

Introduction.
Salaminius Hermias Sozomen
Part I.—The Life.
The name is an unusual and difficult one. It seems desirable to give preference to the order which Photius adopts, but to preserve the spelling in Nicephorus Callistus, and in the captions of the chief manuscripts, and therefore to call him "Salaminius Hermias Sozomen". What the term "Salaminius" indicates, cannot yet be accurately determined. There are no data to show any official connection of Sozomen with "Salamis" opposite Athens, or "Salamis" (Constantia) in Cyprus; certainly there is no record of any naval service. In vi. 32, where he speaks of the greater lights of monasticism in Palestine, Hilarion, Hesychas, and Epiphanius, he remarks, “At the same period in the monasteries, "Salamines", Phuscon, Malachion, Crispion, four brethren, were highly distinguished.” In the tart controversy between Epiphanius and the empress, the latter had said, “You have not power to revive the dead; otherwise your archdeacon would not have died.” Sozomen explains, “She alluded to Crispion, the archdeacon, who had died a short time previously; he was brother to Phuscon and "Salamanus", monks whom I had occasion to mention when detailing the history of events under the reign of Valens” (viii. 15). The readings in the first citation fluctuate between the forms "Salamines" and "Salamanes". Since these monks were of the family of Alaphion, intimate friends and neighbors of the grandfather of Sozomen (v. 15), it might be conjectured that "Salamines" stood in some relationship with Sozomen, such as sponsor or teacher, and that the cognomen might have its origin from such a connection.

The supposition that it had some connection with Salamis in Cyprus has no foundation.
