Was he ordained a bishop immediately after his election? (There was one pope that that happened to.) Michael Hardy 20:27, 30 Dec 2003 (UTC)

"So on 25 December, 784, Tarasius was consecrated patriarch. In 785 he sent the priest George as his legate to Hadrian I with a letter in which he announced his appointment. In his reply the pope expressed his disapproval of the elevation of Tarasius directly from the laity to the dignity of a bishop contrary to canonical regulation, but allowed clemency to rule in view of the orthodoxy of the new patriarch's views, and recognized him as patriarch."

According to Reynolds and Wilson p.55, Photios wrote the Bibliotecha for "his brother Tarasius" before 855[1]. . Wikipedia identifies Tarasios as Photios' uncle. Do we know anything about this younger Tarasius? Jodi.a.schneider (talk) 00:32, 23 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
