Nicholas I Mystikos

   Patriarch of Constantinople (qq.v.) from 901-907 and 912-925. He became immersed in controversy because of his refusal to accept Leo VI's (q.v.) fourth marriage, the so-called tetragamy. Leo VI deposed and exiled him in 907, appointing Euthymios (q.v.) in his place. This created a schism in the church between the followers of Nicholas and those of Euthymios. Nicholas was recalled in 912, whereupon he energetically deposed the supporters of Euthymios. Only later, after the death of Euthymios in 917, was the Tome of Union (q.v.) able to achieve church reconciliation.
