Asceticism and Christological Controversy in Fifth-Century Palestine

This chapter discusses the major stages in Peter the Iberian’s life and career, highlighting the impact of different geographical, cultural, and political influences, namely those of Georgia, Constantinople, Jerusalem, Palestine, Alexandria, and Egypt, and the contributions of individuals from different social roles, such as imperial nobility, patriarchs, monks, pilgrims, and women. Central to this examination is Peter’s multifaceted role of prince, monk, and bishop. He played a central role in the history of the anti-Chalcedonian community in Palestine, both as a figure who decisively influenced events as well as a model and hero that inspired people to adhere to an ideal even after his death.

Keywords:   Peter the Iberian, life, career, anti-Chalcedonian movement, Palestine
