Peter the Fuller

   Patriarch of Antioch (qq.v.) three times; he was ejected twice for his Monophysitism (q.v.). The second of his two terms (476-477; the first was 469-471) occurred during the brief reign of the usurper Basiliskos (q.v.). Zeno (q.v.) allowed him back for a third term in 482 after he accepted the Henotikon (q.v.). He remained at his post until his death in 488. His career is an example ofhow, after the Council ofChalcedon (q.v.), Monophysitism continued to provoke serious discord within the eastern church. An uncertain tradition claims he was a fuller, hence the epithet.
