What's In A Name?

In 457 AD, the Monophysite Timothy the Cat was elected Patriarch of Alexandria.
He was succeeded by another Monophysite named Peter the Hoarse.
Peter the Hoarse was immediately run out of town by the Imperial authorities and replaced by Timothy of the White Turban, who happened to be a proponent of Chalcedon.
