|Bishop of Petra|
|Died||365, Petra, Jordan|
|Venerated in||Roman Catholic Church|
Asterius of Petra was a convert form Arianism, and later the Bishop of Petra. At the Council of Sardica, ca. 347, Asterius first denounced Arianism, as a heresy. This led to his exile in Libya, at the command of Emperor Constantius II. In 362, he was restored to his position of Bishop of Petra, by Emperor Julian. Asterius would then attend the Council of Alexandria, where he was chosen as the delegate to write a letter to the Church of Antioch, where he provided a report of the proceedings at the council for the church leaders of Antioch. He died in Petra in 365.
