PETER CHRYSOLOGUS (c. 400-450), Bishop of Ravenna. He preached his first sermon as Bishop in the presence of the Empress Galla Placidia, and received her support for his ambitious building projects. In a letter to Eutyches (449) he asserted the necessity for adherence to the Roman see in matters of faith. A large collection of sermons attributed to him survives.
