Theodoret (c. 390–c. 460)

Theodoret (thē-od’ō-ret). A celebrated Greek Church historian and theological writer; born at Antioch about 390; died about 460. He became bishop of Cyrrhus, a city in Syria, 423, and there passed the remainder of his life. He wrote voluminous commentaries on the Scriptural books, of which many are extant; we have also his ‘Church History’ in five books, covering the period 324–429, and several of his theological tractates, besides about 200 of his ‘Letters.’
