Paulinus II of Antioch
Paulinus II was a claimant to the See of Antioch from 362 to 388. He was supported by members of the Eustathian party, and was a rival to Meletius of Antioch. The Eustathians objected to Meletius having been consecrated by Arians, and had begun to meet separately. Lucifer of Calaris ordained Paulinus as bishop, thus effecting a schism in the church.
Paulinus died in 388. His followers were called "Paulinians."
