Feast August 30

Paul IV, known as Paul the New was Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople from 780-784. He had once opposed the veneration of icons but urged the calling of an ecumenical council to address the iconoclast controversy. He resigned and retired to a monastery due to old age and illness. He was succeeded by Tarasios, who was a lay administrator at the time.

Paul the New is venerated as a saint in the Eastern Orthodox Church, and his feast day is celebrated on August 30.
