Bishop of Antioch (190-211). Known principally through his theological
writings. Of these Eusebius (Hist. eccl., V, 19) mentions a private letter
addressed to Caricus and Pontius against the Montanist heresy; a treatise
addressed to a certain Domninus, who in time of persecution abandoned
Christianity for the error of
Jewish will-worship (Hist. eccl., VI, 12); a
work on the Docetic Gospel attributed to St. Peter, in which the Christian
community of Rhossus in Syria is warned of the erroneous character of this
Gospel. These were the only works of Serapion with which Eusebius was acquainted,
but he says it is probable that others were extant in his time. He gives two
short extracts from the first and third.
