Identity

In hagiography: Severus, bishop of Samosata and known as a wonder-worker, was the brother of the Patriarch Athanasius the Camel-Driver. He accompanied his brother to meet Heraclius to return the cross of Jerusalem, and he endured persecution for his Miaphysite position. He lived much of the year as a solitary monk, and he was lame for much of his life after he broke his leg from falling off a horse. He was known for chasing away demons.
