Abstract :
In origin the Anastasia (Constantinople) was a house chapel, given the name Anastasia by Nazianzus to symbolize his resurrections (anastasis) of the Nicene faith (379-381) in the Arian-dominated capital; during the 5th c. the relics of a S. Anastasia from Sirmium were translated there. The 2Vita Marciani records that the Arian Goth generals Ardabur (junior) and Aspar of the Alan family provided the ecclesiastical vessels for Marcian's purported rebuilding ca.450-472. Snee looks at the evidence for a rebuilding and investigates why the generals would have dedicated vessels not only to a Nicene church, but to one that was a symbol of anti-Arianism in Constantinople. ;
