Greek ecclesiastical writer and exegete. In early life he was a monk, but little else is known of his career. He was alive and supporting the Alexandrians in the controversies leading up to the Council of Chalcedon (451). He is said to have commented on the whole Bible. Most of the long commentary on Pss., formerly attributed to St Athanasius, is probably his work. Feast day in the Greek Church, 28 Mar.
