Anastasius of Sinai
Anastasius of Sinai (d. c.701)
Prolific 7th-century Christian writer, operating in Egypt and/or Syria-Palestine; little is known about Anastasius’ life. He was a strident Chalcedonian, and wrote several sermons and theological tracts attacking Miaphysitism and Monotheletism. His Questions and Answers reveals much about the quotidian concerns of ordinary Christians, pluralism in religious practice, and broader cultural changes. In particular, there are repeated questions over bodily and spiritual purity, and the significance of the Arab conquests.
