      Mor Severus of Antioch (+538)
      (Source:- from the SOR WEB PAGE )

      St. Severus was the Syriac Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch known by
      the epithet togho dsuryoye "crown of the Syrians". He studied at
      Alexandria and Beirut and was baptized in 488. Later he became a
      monk. Around 508, he went to Constantinople where he secured the
      support of Emperor Anastasius (491-518) for the persecuted "Syriac
      Orthodox" Christians who rejected the Council of Chalcedon.

      In 512, he became the Patriarch of Antioch, but when Emperor Justin I
      came to power, he was unjustly deposed and expelled. But he remained
      the Patriarch in Exile in the eyes of his supporters. He took refuge
      in Alexandria with Patriarch Timothy II. The Chalcedonians
      excommunicated him in 536.

      Severus was a leading theologian and most of his works, written in
      Greek, survive only in Syriac, many of which remain unedited.
