They comprise large sections from Didymus the Blind's misplaced statement at the Apocalypse (fourth century) and for this reason counter the present trust that Oecumenius' statement (sixth century) used to be the main old. Professor Tzamalikos argues that their writer used to be in reality Cassian the Sabaite, an erudite monk and abbot on the monastery of Sabas, the good Laura, in Palestine. He was once diversified from the alleged Latin writer John Cassian, put a century or so ahead of the true Cassian. The Scholia attest to the strain among the imperial Christian orthodoxy of the 6th century and likely monastic circles, who drew freely on Hellenic rules and on alleged 'heretics'. They exhibit that, in the course of that interval, Hellenism was once a lively strength inspiring not just pagan intellectuals, but additionally influential Christian quarters.
