An Ancient Commentary on the Book of Revelation

Full Product Description

This is a new critical edition, with translation and commentary, of the Scholia in Apocalypsin. These comments include extensive sections from Didymus the Blind's lost commentary on the Apocalypse from the fourth century and therefore counter the prevailing belief that Oecumenius' sixth-century commentary was the most ancient. Professor Tzamalikos argues that their author was in fact Cassian, an erudite monk and abbot at the monastery of Sabas, the Great Laura, in Palestine, who was different from the Latin author John Cassian, who allegedly lived a century or so before the real Cassian. The Scholia attest to the tension between the imperial Christian orthodoxy of the sixth century and certain monastic circles, who drew freely on Hellenic ideas, as well as those of alleged 'heretics'. They show that Hellenism was a vigorous force during this period and inspired not only pagan intellectuals, but also influential Christian quarters.
