Origin of name Theodosis – Agios Theodosios ( St Theodosios)

Theodosios was born in 346AD, and was the son of General Theodosios of Africa. Theodosios, went to Spain after the death of his father, and was also a soldier and later a legionnaire. After a few great battles and wins, he became August (ruler) of Sirmion City that belonged to the Roman Empire.

Although a man of the army, he was a devoted Christian and he published a law, according to which only the people accepting the results of the Ecumenical Synod of Nice would be called Christians, and the heretics would not be using this name and title. Later on, Theodosios was the one who accepted the Holy Spirit as the third part, creating what we know as the Holy Triad.

Theodosios became Emperor, and was declared a Saint from the Greek Orthodox Church – although the historical facts  referring to the persecutions and killings of pagans do not actually contribute to this title. History and Theology are two different things anyway.

The Memory of St Theodosios, who was also named Theodosios the Great, is celebrated on January the 17th.
