John of Ephesus
- Author of the Church History, a work in Syriac that extends from Julius Caesar to 585. Only the final part of the work, covering the years 521-585, survives. It provides a valuable narrative of the reign of Justinian I (q.v.) and its aftermath. The point of view is pro-Monophysite (q.v.), as seen in his favorable opinion of Justinian I's wife Theodora (q.v.). In 545-546 he made a name for himself in Constantinople (q.v.) by denouncing prominent persons as crypto-pagans.
