From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Icon of Saint Callinicus I, Patriarch of Constantinople.
Kallinikos I was the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople from 693 to 705.[1]
Callinicus helped to depose Emperor Justinian II and place Leontios on the Byzantine throne.
Upon Justinian's triumphant return to Constantinople and reinstatement as Emperor, Callinicus was arrested and blinded before being imprisoned in a monastery.[2]
