Eunomius of Cyzicus – Biography


Eunomius, (c.335 – c.395), a Greek bishop, headed the Eunomians, the extreme faction of the Arian sect.

He was born in Dakora, Cappadocia (eastern Asia Minor), about 335. About 360 he became bishop of Cyzicus (near the Kapıdağı Peninsula in the Sea of Marmara), but was deposed the next year because of his extreme views.

He became leader of the radical Arians, organized communities, was exiled and moved often, and wrote much, of which fragments remain. He died at Dakora about 395. The Eunomians held that Christ was not only inferior to God, but of a different nature.
