Quercum, Synodus ad

(Syn. at The Oak). Held 403 on the imperial estate called The Oak (Lat. Quercus), in a suburb of Chalcedon (modern Kadiköy, opposite Istanbul, on E side of entrance to Bosporus); attended by perhaps ca. 36 bps.; condemned and deposed J. Chrysostom* in his absence on charges that were for the most part of no importance and showed nothing but the enmity of his accusers. See also Acacius of Bercea.
