Considering that he departed this life in 435, is he accepted?

Or does the treatise he wrote on the Incarnation against Nestorius for the future Pope Leo cause us a problem?

Asking because Wikipedia doesn't include any of our Churches in the list of those which honour/venerate him.

Thank you Cool

What about St. Demiana - she is not known in the west right?

I don't know if you'd be interested in this but here you can read the Seven Books of John Cassian on the Incarnation of the Lord, Against Nestorius: Book 1 Chapter 1 http://www.ccel.org/ccel/schaff/npnf211.iv.vii.ii.i.html
