There are at least two saints named Meletius. This St. Meletius was bishop of Antioch, and died while presiding at the Third Council of Constantinople, in 381. Because he was involved in the Antiochene Schism (two Catholic bishops were appointed at the same time) and because he was at first supported and later exiled by the Arians, this St. Meletius is sometimes confused with his contemporary Meletius of Lycopolis, the driving force in the Meletian Schism, which was backed by the Arians.
