|Venerated in|| Eastern Orthodoxy|
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.
