St Elias, Patriarch of Jerusalem, and St Flavius, Patriarch of Antioch.

Commemorated July 20 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

Great zealots for the Faith and defenders of Orthodoxy, they both died in exile, driven there by the heretical Emperor Anastasius. They foresaw precisely the death of Emperor Anastasius and their own deaths. They wrote to each other at the same time from widely different places: 'Anastasius the Emperor is dying today; let us go to God's judgement with him.' After two days, both these holy hierarchs died, in the year 518.
