Sts Peter and Paul, Bishops of Nicea

Saints Peter and Paul were bishops at Nicea. St Peter defended the Orthodox Faith against the iconoclasts during the reign of Leo the Isaurian (813-820) and endured suffering for this. He died no earlier than the year 823.

Four Letters of St Theodore the Studite to St Peter are known, written between the years 816-823. No account about the life of St Paul of Nicea has been preserved. His name is first mentioned in the so-called “Petrine” Greek Prologue of the eleventh century.
