StMark, Archbishop of Ephesus.

Commemorated January 19 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

Famous for his courageous defence of Orthodoxy at the Council of Florence in the face of the Emperor and the Pope, he entered peacefully into rest in the year 1445. On his deathbed, he begged his disciple George, later the famous Patriarch Gennadius, to keep himself from the snare of the West and to defend Orthodoxy.
