Eunomius, Bishop of Cyzicus, approximately 335-approximately 394

Medieval and Early Modern Greek Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'> The manuscript contains the <i> Liber apologeticus</i> ("Apology") by <i> Eunomius</i> (d. 394), bishop of Cyzicus. Eunomius adhered to the Christian heresy of Arianism, which denied the consubstantiality of the Father and the Son, and was condemned by the Council of Constantinople (381 CE). His works were condemned and few survive. </p><p style='text-align: justify;'> The manuscript (codex E in Vaggione 1985 and Vaggione 1987) was copied in the 17th century from MS London, Lambeth Palace, 802 (a), which was copied before the 8th January 1687/8 (see Wright, Argyrou and Dendrinos 2016, p. 66). Since Ms Emmanuel 249 was copied by the same scribe as MS Lambeth Palace 802 (a), its production is probably to be placed around the same period of time, in the 1680s. </p><p style='text-align: justify;'> Dr Erika Elia</p>
