An Ancient Commentary on the Book of Revelation: A Critical by Professor P. Tzamalikos

By Professor P. Tzamalikos

It is a new serious variation, with translation and statement, of the Scholia in Apocalypsin, which have been falsely attributed to Origen a century in the past. They contain wide sections from Didymus the Blind's misplaced observation at the Apocalypse (fourth century) and for that reason counter the present trust that Oecumenius' observation (sixth century) used to be the main historical. Professor Tzamalikos argues that their writer was once in reality Cassian the Sabaite, an erudite monk and abbot on the monastery of Sabas, the good Laura, in Palestine. He was once diversified from the alleged Latin writer John Cassian, positioned a century or so ahead of the true Cassian. The Scholia attest to the strain among the imperial Christian orthodoxy of the 6th century and sure monastic circles, who drew freely on Hellenic principles and on alleged 'heretics'. They express that, in the course of that interval, Hellenism used to be a lively strength inspiring not just pagan intellectuals, but in addition influential Christian quarters.
