Tarasios

   Patriarch of Constantinople (qq.v.) from 784-806. He was secretary (asekretis [q.v.]) to Irene (q.v.) when she appointed him patriarch. He presided over the Seventh Ecumenical Council at Nicaea (q.v.) in 787, which condemned Iconoclasm (q.v.). From 795 until Constantine VI (q.v.) was deposed in 797 Tarasios was embroiled in the Moechian controversy (q.v.), supporting the emperor's divorce and persecuting Theodore of Stoudios (q.v.) and his supporters.
