SIMEON Metaphrastes

SIMEON Metaphrastes
sic dictus, quia vitas Sanctorum scripsit, floruit saeculô 10. sub Leone Philosopho et Constantino Porphyrogeneta: stirpe illustris, Imperatori a secretis: a quo missus in Cretam, cui Saraceni imminebant, ad versô ventô in Insulam Parum eiectus est. Ibi cum incidisset in Eremitam quenmam, rogatu eius, vitam Theoctistae, virginis Lesbiae descripsit, hâcque dulcedine motus, etiam reliquorum Sanctorum vitas orsus est, sed in plurimis nimium credulus fuit, Michael Psellus, Voss. de Histor. Gr. l. 2. c. 25. Leo Allatius dissert. de Psell. Hunc male quidam confundunt, cum Iuniore Theologo, qui 33. homilias de Fide et Virtuibus Christianis composuit, a P. Pontano editas: vixitque A. C. 1150. Item, cum Logotheta, auctore Chronici et 24. Orationum ex Basilio Caesariensi, depromptarum. Item, cum Archiepiscopo Thessalonicensi, qui floruit, A. C. 1140. Voss Theophilus Rainaldus, in Erotem. Allatius dissert. de iis, quibus Simeonis, Simonis, Simonidis et Simonyctidis nomen fuit. Lloyd.
