Nicene and Ante-Nicene Fathers, Ser. II, Vol I:
The Church History of Eusebius.: Chapter XXIV

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter XXIV.—Annianus the First Bishop of the Church of Alexandria after Mark.

1. When Nero was in the eighth year of his reign, 533 Annianus 534 succeeded Mark the evangelist in the administration of the parish of Alexandria. 535



62 a.d. With this agrees Jerome’s version of the Chron., while the Armenian version gives the seventh year of Nero.


Annianus, according to Bk. III. chap. 14, below, held his office twenty-two years. In Apost. Const. VII. 46 he is said to have been ordained by Mark as the first bishop of Alexandria. The Chron. Orient. 89 (according to Westcott in the Dict. of Christ. Biog.) reports that he was appointed by Mark after he had performed a miracle upon him. He is commemorated in the Roman martyrology with St. Mark, on April 25.


Upon Mark’s connection with Egypt, see above, chap. 16, note 1.

Next: Chapter XXV
