Athanasius II of Constantinople
Athanasius was born in Crete early in the fifteenth century. He was elected patriarch of Constantinople in 1450, succeeding the deposed Gregory III. After the Fall of Constantinople, he escaped and retired to Mount Athos where he settled into a monastic house on the site of the old Monastery of Xistrou that he dedicated to St. Anthony the Great.
