John I of Antioch was Patriarch of Antioch 429–441 and led a group of moderate Eastern bishops during the Nestorian controversy He is sometimes confused with John Chrysostom, who is occasionally also referred to as John of Antioch John gave active support to his friend Nestorius in the latter's dispute with Cyril of Alexandria In the year 431, he arrived too late for the opening meeting of the First Council of Ephesus Cyril, suspecting John of using procrastinating tactics to support Nestorius, decided not to wait and convened the council without John and his supporters, condemning Nestorius When John reached Ephesus a few days after the council had begun, he convened a counter-council which condemned Cyril and vindicated Nestorius
Two years later, in 433 John reconciled with Cyril based on the Formula of Reunion, a theological formula devised as a compromise In the process, John lost many of his own supporters within his patriarchate Some of his letters are extant
