Pope Julian (Yulianus) of Alexandria, 11th Pope of Alexandria & Patriarch of the See of St. Mark. He is commemorated in the Coptic Synaxarium on the 8th day of Paremhat.
There was a man who was a wise priest, and had studied the books of God, and his name was Julian; and he walked in the path of chastity and religion and tranquillity. So a body of bishops of the synod assembled, together with the orthodox laity, in the city of Alexandria, Egypt, and searched among the whole people, but could find none like this priest. So they laid their hands upon him, and appointed him patriarch. He composed homilies and sermons on the saints; and he continued in the see ten years. After this patriarch, the bishop of Alexandria did not remain always in that city, but issued thence secretly, and ordained priests in every place, as Saint Mark, the evangelist, had done. Julian went to his rest on the 8th of Paremhat, or on the 12th of Babah, as some say, in the eighth year of the reign of Commodus, the Roman emperor.
