St Emilian the Confessor, Bishop of Cyzicus.

Commemorated August 8 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

He was bishop in Cyzicus in the time of the wicked Emperor Leo the Armenian, the iconoclast. Refusing to carry out the imperial directive on the removal of icons from the churches, he was, along with other Orthodox bishops, sent into exile. He spent five years in exile, enduring many ills and much humiliation for the sake of Christ. He died in 820, and joined the company of the citizens of heaven.
