==Deposition and Repose==
After St. Anthimus was condemned and deposed, he entered into monastic seclusion under the protection of empress Theodora until her death in 548. While in retirement he concelebrated the consecration of St. [[Jacob Baradaeus]] to the episcopacy, thus playing a key role in the survival of the hierarchy of the [[Church of Antioch (Syriac)|Syriac Orthodox Church]]. The date of his repose is unknown. St. Anthimus is recognized as a saint by the [[Church of Armenia|Armenian]], [[Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church|Malankara]], and Syriac Orthodox Churches.
