By Professor P. Tzamalikos

it is a new serious version, with translation and remark, of the Scholia in Apocalypsin. those reviews contain huge sections from Didymus the Blind's misplaced statement at the Apocalypse from the fourth century and as a result counter the existing trust that Oecumenius' sixth-century statement was once the main old. Professor Tzamalikos argues that their writer was once actually Cassian, an erudite monk and abbot on the monastery of Sabas, the good Laura, in Palestine, who used to be varied from the Latin writer John Cassian, who allegedly lived a century or so prior to the true Cassian. The Scholia attest to the stress among the imperial Christian orthodoxy of the 6th century and likely monastic circles, who drew freely on Hellenic rules, in addition to these of alleged 'heretics'. They express that Hellenism was once a lively strength in this interval and encouraged not just pagan intellectuals, but in addition influential Christian quarters.
