, a Greek writer of the fifth century, composed a book under the title of “Altercatio Symonis Judaei & Theophili Christiani,” which may be seen in Martenne’s­“Thesaurus Anecdotorum.” The authors of the “Histoire literaire de la France,” torn. II. have shewn that the author of this writing mentioned by Gennadius was not a Greek, but a French priest, who had been the disciple of St. Martin. They place him accordingly in the former half of the fifth century, and ascribe to him likewise the “Consultationes seu deliberationes Zachan Christiani & Apollonii philosophi,” which Luke d’Acheri has printed in his “Spicilegium,” tom. X. 2
