Theodoret of Cyrus or Cyrrhus was an influential theologian of the School of Antioch, biblical commentator, Christian bishop of Cyrrhus. He played a pivotal role in several 5th-century Byzantine Church controversies that led to various ecumenical acts and schisms, he wrote against Cyril of Alexandria's 12 Anathemas which were sent to Nestorius and did not condemn Nestorius until the Council of Chalcedon. His writings against Cyril were included in the Three Chapters Controversy and were condemned at the Second Council of Constantinople; some Chalcedonian and East Syriac Christians regard him as a "full" saint. Although the Eastern Orthodox Protopresbyter Michael Pomazansky refers to him as "Blessed", there is no evidence in his work that this is the official position of any Eastern Orthodox jurisdiction. Hieromonk Seraphim Rose refers to Theodoret as "Blessed" in his book The Place of Blessed Augustine in the Orthodox Church while explaining the nature of the term "Blessed" in the Russian Orthodox Church, referring to how both Sts. Augustine and Jerome are referred to as "Blessed" too despite being part of the Orthodox Saints Calendar.

According to Tillemont, he was born at Antioch in 393, died either at Cyrrhus, or at the monastery near Apamea about 457. The following facts about his life are gleaned from his Epistles and his Religious History, he was the child of a prosperous Antiochene couple, childless for many years. Encouraged by the fact that his mother had been cured of a serious eye complaint and converted to a sober life by Peter the Galatian, an ascetic living in an unoccupied in the locality, Theodoret's parents sought further help from the local holy men, since she had been childless for twelve years. For years their hopes were fed but not fulfilled. Theodoret's birth was promised by a hermit named Macedonius the Barley-Eater on the condition of his dedication to God, whence the name Theodoret. Theodoret received an extensive secular education; the actual evidence given to us by Theodoret suggests that his education was religious. He paid weekly visits to Peter the Galatian, was instructed by Macedonius and other ascetics, at an early age became a lector among the clergy of Antioch.

Though he speaks of Diodore of Tarsus and Theodore of Mopsuestia as his teachers, this is improbable - though it was their theological tradition in which he was brought up. He also, received an extensive classical education, unsurprisingly for the child of prosperous parents in a city which had long been a centre of secular learning and culture, his correspondents included the sophists Isokasius. He understood Syriac as well as was not acquainted with either Hebrew or Latin. In his letters he quotes from Homer, Euripides, Aristophanes and Thucydides; when he was twenty-three years old and both parents were dead, he divided his fortune among the poor and became a monk in the monastery of Nicerte not far from Apamea. There he lived for about seven years. In 423 he left as he had been appointed Bishop of Cyrrhus, over a diocese about forty miles square and embracing 800 parishes, but with an insignificant town as its see city. Theodoret, supported only by the appeals of the intimate hermits, himself in personal danger, zealously guarded purity of the doctrine.

He converted more than 1,000 Marcionites besides many Arians and Macedonians. His philanthropic and economic interests were extensive and varied: he endeavored to secure relief for the people oppressed with taxation. To the persecuted Christians of Persian Armenia he sent letters of encouragement, to the Carthaginian Celestiacus, who had fled the rule of the Vandals, he gave refuge. Theodoret stands out prominently in the christological controversies aroused by Cyril of Alexandria. Theodoret shared in the petition of John I of Antioch to Nestorius to approve of the term theotokos, upon the request of John wrote against Cyril's anathemas, he may have prepared the Antiochian symbol, to secure the emperor's true understanding of the Nicene Creed, he was a member and spokesman of the deputation of eight from Antioch called by the emperor to Chalcedon. To the condemnation of Nestorius he could not assent. John, reconciled to Cyril by the emperor's order, sought to bring Theodoret to submission by entrenching upon his eparchy.

Theodoret was determined to preserve the peace of the Church by seeking the adoption of a formula avoiding the unconditional condemnation of Nestorius, toward the close of 434 strove earnestly for the reconciliation between the Eastern churches. But Cyril refused to compromise and when he opened his attack upon Diodorus of Tarsus and Theodore, John sided with them and Theodoret assumed the defense of the Antiochian party. Domnus II, the successor of John, took him as his counselor. After the death of Cyril, adherents of the Antiochian theology were appointed to bishoprics. Irenaeus the friend of Nestorius, with the cooperation of Theodoret, became bishop of Tyre, in spite of the protests of Dioscorus, Cyril's successor, who now turned specially against Theodoret.

Fort Bedford

Fort Bedford was a French and Indian War-era British military fortification located at the present site of Bedford, Pennsylvania. The fort was a star-shaped log fortress erected in the summer of 1758. Fort Bedford was constructed during the French and Indian War by British troops under the command of Colonel Henry Bouquet by order of General John Forbes; the fort was one of a string of British forts and blockhouses designed to protect British supply lines on the Forbes Road, a pioneer trail built by the British during their invasion of the Ohio Country and campaign against the French garrison at Fort Duquesne, modern day Pittsburgh. After General Edward Braddock's campaign to take the forks of the Ohio River ended in disaster, General Forbes was placed in command of a new expedition to capture the strategic point guarded by Fort Duquesne. Forbes vowed not to make the same mistakes as his predecessor. Braddock had led a small invasion force launched from western Maryland, his poorly defended lines of communication were soon compromised.

Forbes intended to launch a large invasion from eastern Pennsylvania by hacking a new pioneer wagon road over the Allegheny Mountains. His plan called for a string of forts and blockhouses to guard the supply road from hostile bands of Native Americans. After constructing Fort Juniata Crossing near present Breezewood, Colonel Bouquet began planning Fort Bedford as the next step towards the Ohio Country. Bouquet chose a spot adjacent to the Juniata River west of a strategic gap in the mountains called "the narrows". Keeping with the overall plan, the new site was about one day's march from the previous fort. After being referred to as the "camp at Raystown", the new encampment was dubbed Fort Bedford in honor of the Duke of Bedford. Bouquet searched the area for some time to find a site, both defensible and had access to fresh water. Since he could find no spot in the area with both these characteristics, the builders placed the fort on a high spot and devised an innovative fortified elevated gallery that provided access to and water from the Juniata River.

It is believed that Fort Bedford was the only fort constructed in America with this arrangement. The exact location of the fort has been lost to history. Several archaeological digs have failed to yield any solid evidence of the fort's site. Using period documents, historians believe it was located somewhere along what is now East Pitt Street in the Borough of Bedford; the fort was a log star-shaped fortress with five bastions. The walls enclosed an area of 1.45 acres. The main gate was located on the south side of the structure and was protected by an earthen ravelin; the north side, which faced the river, featured the unique gallery to the riverbank. The non-river sides were protected by a ditch estimated at between 9 feet in depth. Fort Bedford has been described as the "Grand Central Station of the Forbes campaign" during the French and Indian War, it was used as a staging ground and central storage area for the British Army's push westward towards the French garrisons. Colonel Bouquet and General Forbes used it as their headquarters for portions of the campaign.

After the bulk of the army moved westward, the fort was garrisoned by about 800 men. The fort saw little action during the war and was used as a forward supply base; as the French and Indian War wound down in the frontier, the fort's garrison was moved to other forts. Captain Lewis Ourry, in command of the fort at the outbreak of Pontiac's War, listed just twelve Royal Americans on his roster to guard the fort and more than 90 local families. Despite the weakness of the garrison, the fort was not directly attacked by native warriors. Instead they raided several local settlements and attacked supply trains bound for the fort hoping to starve out the garrison; the arrival of reinforcements under Colonel Bouquet in July 1763 ended most of the local raiding. Details of the fort during the inter-war years are controversial; the British Army abandoned the fort sometime during this period. According to the autobiography of James Smith, leader of a colonial movement known as the "Black Boys", he and his men captured the fort in 1769.

This incident is documented only in Smith's autobiography, so it may be a tall tale, although historian Gregory Evans Dowd notes that there is some corroborating evidence, that some other historians believe the tale to be true. Smith called this the first British fort to fall in the era of the American Revolution; the incident was portrayed in the 1939 Hollywood film Allegheny Uprising, starring John Wayne as James Smith. The fort was garrisoned by the Patriot-sympathizing Bedford County militia during the Revolutionary War; the fort guarded the frontier settlers against raids by British-allied native bands. After the American War of Independence ended, the treaties of the 1780s such as the Treaty of Fort Stanwix and the Treaty of Fort McIntosh reduced the fear of Indian raids in the area of the fort. Sometime during this period, the fort was demolished. George Washington stopped at the town of Bedford while leading troops into Western Pennsylvania to put down the Whiskey Rebellion in 1794. Records of the army's stay at that time seem to indicate that the fort had been razed.

A reconstruction of the log blockhouse was built on the site in 1958 in honor of the fort's 200th anniversary. It is a museum operated by The Bedford Heritage Trust.
