(p.215) 9 Three disputed elections
Episcopal Elections 250-600


Oxford University Press

This chapter examines three disputed elections, with the aim of demonstrating the interplay between the various forces at work in an election discussed earlier in the book. The cases were chosen for a variety of reasons. First, they are all elections to metropolitan sees. The significance of this has been touched upon — the Nicene mechanism, such as it was, did not provide for this type of election. Secondly, they are all informative and revealing, given the variety of protagonists and factors involved. Finally, in each of the three cases, the chapter untangles the evidence to show that these elections were by no means legitimate.
