A bishop of Caria in Syria; d., probably, in 770. In his anti-heretical dialogues (P.G., XCVII, 1461-1609) he claimed frequently to reproduce the identical words of the great Eastern theologian, St. John of Damascus, whose disciple he was. St. John addressed to him three famous discourses in defence of the sacred images. There are attempts to identify him with a Bishop Theodore of Caria who attended the Eighth Ecumenical Council of Constantinople (869).
