This chapter examines Theodoret of Cyrrhus' clerical network in the context of the wider world of late Roman patronage. It surveys key figures in relations to patronage and the potential for Syrian bishops to find a place in this transactional web. It explores the mediating roles that Theodoret and his colleagues sought vis-à-vis other elites, including local notables, educators, civil officials, military leaders, and alternative experts in religion.
