I was reading St. John's Biography at:http://www.suscopts.org/literature/literature.php?subaction=showfull&id=1076775572&archive=&start_from=&ucat=2&
and in the conclusion if you notice it says:St. Cyril, the 24th Pope of the See of Alexandria, denounced the exile of St. John Chrysostom. History documents that St. Cyril knew of the regret of the exile and cruel death of the Bishop of the See of Constantinople by Pope Theophilus.
Can any one explain to me why Pope Theophilus agreed to his exile in the first place? I figured that the problem was between the queen and St John; I just don't understand Abba Theophilus's stance?
