Pope Eumenes (Emenaios), 7th Pope of Alexandria & Patriarch of the See of St. Mark. He was one of the most respected Christians in Alexandria, Egypt. He was chosen in the month of July (Abib) in the year 129 AD during the reign of the Roman Emperor Hadrian. He also took over from Pope Justus as the second Dean of the The Catechetical School of Alexandria (also known as the Theological School of Alexandria).
