Ever heard of St. Maximus the Confessor? An aide to Byzantine Emperor Heraclius, he would later enter monastic life. He preached against Monothelitism and was persecuted for his defense of the Chalcedonian formula. He was exiled and would later die in Georgia. pic.twitter.com/vmzZWaB1fT— Pontifical Oriental Institute (@theorientale) January 21, 2021
