Patriarch of Constantinople (qq.v.) from 446-449. His condemnation of Eutyches (q.v.) for heresy in 448 brought down on him the wrath of the powerful eunuch Chrysaphios (qq.v.), and of the patriarch of Alexandria, Dioskoros (qq.v.). At the "Robber" Council of Ephesus (q.v.) in 449, Dioskoros had Flavian deposed. He died while preparing to go into exile.
