Proterius of Alexandria
The establishment of Proterios led to mass unrest, military protection and repression measures in Alexandria and finally to the murder of the new bishop by council opponents on the eve of Easter in 457. His opponents accused Proterios of persecuting dissenters and made him responsible for the killing of more than 30,000 Christian men and women in Alexandria.
