The second part presents the actions of the Sleeping Monks in Constantinople during the period of the Monophysite disputes after the Fourth Ecu-menical Council (451), until 534. The factors that highlighted their monastery the influence in ecclesiastical and political life, as well as their interaction with the flock of Constantinople. Methodological sources of the time, Greek and Syrian, were used, in combination with the ex-isting literature.
