EUGENICUS, MARK, METROPOLITAN OF EPHESUS
In the discussions on purgatory he became increasingly hostile to Latin doctrine. The addition to the Creed he declared to be the cause of the schism and also illegal because it was forbidden by the Council of Ephesus; he proclaimed that the filioque doctrine was opposed to Scripture, the Councils, and the Fathers. He accused the Latins of falsifying the texts of their own Doctors who taught the filioque. He was the only Greek prelate consistently to oppose union, did not sign the decree of union, and returned to Constantinople in the Emperor's ship. There he became the center of antiunionism.
On the election of the unionist Metrophanes as patriarch, Mark escaped to his episcopal see May 15, , which he had not yet visited.
However, he soon set off for Mt. After being arrested on imperial orders and confined in a monastery of Lemnos for about two years during a Turkish siege of the island , he was released probably in mid Returning to Constantinople, he continued his antiunionist propaganda until at the approach of death, he persuaded George Scholarius later Patriarch gennadius ii to succeed him in the task.
After 14 days of atrocious pain Mark died on June 23, or Mark was an austere monk and an unflinching champion of orthodoxy as he saw it; he was learned in the Fathers, capable of arguing with the Latins about metaphysics and, strangely, capable also of accusing them of falsifying texts. Mark of Ephesus born Manuel Eugenikos was a hesychast theologian of the late Palaiologan period of the Byzantine Empire who became famous for his rejection of the Council of Ferrara-Florence — As a monk in Constantinople , Mark was a prolific hymnographer  and a devoted Palamite.
As a theologian and a scholar, he was instrumental in the preparations for the Council of Ferrara-Florence, and as Metropolitan of Ephesus and delegate for the Patriarch of Alexandria , he was one of the most important voices at the synod. After renouncing the Council as a lost cause, Mark became the leader of the Orthodox opposition to the Union of Florence, thus sealing his reputation as a defender of Orthodoxy and pillar of the Church. Mark was born Manuel in in Constantinople to George, sakellarios of Hagia Sophia , an Orthodox deacon , and Maria, the daughter of a devout doctor named Luke.
Mark learned how to read and write from his father, who died while Mark and his younger brother John Eugenikos were still children. Maria had Mark continue his education under John Chortasmenos , who later became Metropolitan Ignatius of Selymbria, and a mathematician and philosopher by the name of Gemistus Pletho.
Mark was the only Eastern bishop who refused to sign the agreement with the Roman Catholic Church on a compromise formula, "ex filio," for the Filioque clause disagreement, during the Council of Ferrara. He held that Rome continued in both heresy and schism. He also rejected the doctrine of Purgatory , in that he objected to the existence of a purgatorial fire that "purified" the souls of the faithful.
The doctrine of "purgatorial fire" was typical of medieval Roman Catholic theology.
Mark of Ephesus
In the end, Mark won this aspect of the discussions in the purgatorial debates, since the final formula of union omitted any affirmation of "fire" in reference to the lot of souls after their death and before the beatific vision. He died peacefully at the age of 52 on June 23, , after an excruciating two-week battle with intestinal illness.
On his death bed, Mark implored Georgios Scholarios , his former pupil, who later became Patriarch Gennadius of Constantinople , to be careful of involvement with Western Christendom and to defend Orthodoxy. In Patriarch Seraphim of Constantinople presided over the Holy Synod of the Church of Constantinople and solemnly glorified canonized Mark and added six services to the two older ones.
There is an account of a posthumous miracle performed by St. Doctors gave up on trying to save the life of the terminally ill sister of Demetrios Zourbaios, after their efforts had worsened her condition. After losing consciousness for three days she suddenly woke up, to the delight of her brother, who asked her why she woke up drenched in water. She related that a bishop escorted her to a fountain and washed her and told her, "Return now; you no longer have any illness.
Mark and lived devoutly for another 15 years. Photius the Great and St. Gregory Palamas , a Pillar of Orthodoxy. Nikodimos of the Holy Mountain , in his service to the saint, called him "the Atlas of Orthodoxy.
Mark's theological output was extensive and covered a wide range of genres and topics typical of monastic writers. Hymnography Mark composed a wealth of poetic texts honoring God and the saints, many of which were intended for use in a liturgical setting.

Symeon Metaphrastes, along with a wealth of more ancient saints. Additionally, Mark composed verses celebrating the lives and achievements of his heroes, such as Joseph Bryennios. Hesychasm Mark was a devoted disciple of Gregory Palamas. Throughout his life he composed several treatises in defense of the essence-energies distinction, and he defended the unique contributions of Hesychast theology in the face of charges of innovation.
At the Council of Florence, the examination of this controversy had both text-critical and exegetical dimensions, as the participants debated the authenticity of sources, the precision of grammatical constructions, and the canon of authoritative patristic texts.
Mark had played an early role in the gathering of manuscripts, and his contested readings at the synod have since been vindicated for their precision and accuracy. Echoing centuries of polemic, going back to Photius, the debates surrounding the Filioque admitted resonances of more recent discussions, such as those of John Bekkos and Gregory of Cyprus. In the end, Mark could not concede that the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Son as well as the Father, even by using the Orthodox phrase of "through the Son," since Mark considered this to be an equivocation in light of the obvious theological disagreements between East and West.
