controversy. They were brothers and natives of Jerusalem. Both entered the monastery of Mar Saba, which, at that time was under the guidance of Michael, later syncellus of the Patriarch of Jerusalem. About 812 they entered a monastery at Constantinople, where in opposition to the Emperor Leo V (813-20) they energetically defended the veneration of images, and consequently were exiled. Under the succeeding emperor, Michael II
