  Nicetas, Bogomil bishop - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Nicetas, known only from Latin sources who call him papa Nicetas, is said to have been the Bogomil bishop of Constantinople.
His purpose was apparently to reinforce the dualist beliefs of the Cathars of these regions, and, in particular, to throw doubt on the validity of their spiritual lineage or ordo, the sequence of consolamenta by which they were linked to the Apostles.
Nicetas instructed the assembly that, just as the Seven Churches of Asia did not interfere with one another's independence, neither did the modern bishoprics of the Bogomils, and nor must the bishoprics of the Cathars.

His fiancée was the daughter of the general Nicetas, whom Heraclius had recently honoured with the rank of patrician.
Nicetas, Heraclius's first cousin (the son of Heraclius's uncle Gregorius), had been a moving force in Heraclius's coup d' état and by the betrothal and marriage of Heraclius Constantine to his second cousin the two halves of the family were united in imperial power.
Gregoria's father Nicetas had taken part in the conquest of Egypt from Phocas, had been governor of Egypt, and was famed for bringing the Holy Sponge and Holy Lance to Constantinople from Palestine in 612; from 619 to 628/9 he appears to have been exarch of Africa.

 The Te Deum
These critical appreciations are thought applicable to the style of the Te Deum, which depends for its effect mostly on the nobility of the theme and the simplicity and directness of the expression.
Their "internal evidence Ö proves that Nicetas felt the need of such a hymn as the Te deum, and, so to speak, lived in the same sphere of religious thought" (Burn, cii), while parallel passages from his writings (given by Burn, ciii-civ), although offering no direct quotation, exhibit similarity of thought and diction.
Perhaps the "remunerati" of St. Cyprian and the "munerari" of the oldest texts of the Te Deum are a mere coincidence; but the rest of the similar passages cannot be an accident.

We cannot wonder at seeing Nicetas deeply incensed against the con­querors ; but though very partial in his expressions, he is generally impartial as to facts.

The older of the two authors, the monk Nicetas the Paphlagonian, was a prominent figure during the reign of Emperor Leo VI (886-912) against whose fourth marriage he was fiercely opposed.
The similarities between the passages in Nicetas' and in Nicephorus' metaphraseis are obvious: the juxtaposition of the opposite emotions "sorrow (lupè)" and "joy (charan, hèdonè)", the problem of "excess (huperbolè, ametria)" and the ensuing danger to the human being.
Nicetas the Paphlagonian states: "To me then it seems to be a very pleasurable matter and one worth the effort to write up his story from the beginning", cf.

Nicetas Stethatos was born sometime in the opening decade of the second Christian millenium and died, an old man, toward the eleventh century's end.
Overall, Nicetas' use of Isaiah 33:14-17 first of all incorporates other and for him related reminiscences from elsewhere in the scriptures and, second, is intended to tie all of them up into a single portrait, that of the holy man or inspired elder.
Nicetas is using it, I think, for the preaching or teaching of the seer, or saint, who has seen God, thus partaken of Wisdom's feast, and so is "worthy of trust".

Then, in a rhetorical flight, suspiciously like Nicetas' own style for a barbarian chieftain, Asen went on to show that, by all calculations, Alexius was no better general than Isaac, and that the Byzantine armies would not be found formidable by the Vlachs, who had so often defeated them.
These were real successes for Alexius, and he crowned them by signing a truce with Ioannitsa, whose terms Nicetas does not give, [59] but which, it may be conjectured, included the granting of the imperial title, and the establishment of the Bulgarian patriarchate.
Nicetas does not even tell us whether Ioannitsa took the title of 'Emperor' after the death of Peter, although we know from another source, as will be seen, that he did.

 Nicetas of Remesiana
366, Nicetas twice visited Paulinus, who was bishop of Nola, in Campania (near Naples), a fellow missionary, the foremost Latin literary figure of his age, and the primary source for knowledge of Nicetas' life and pastoral activity.
Accordingly, Nicetas opposed any attribution of a created nature--either to the Son, contrary to the Arians, or to the Holy Spirit, as against the Macedonians.
Moreover, these documents contain, apparently for the first time in early Christian literature, the term communion of saints, in reference to the belief in a mystical bond uniting both the living and the dead in a confirmed hope and love.
