, a monk of Seba, in Palestine, lived in the beginning of the seventh century. He was the author of “Pandecta3 divinse Scripturee,” and of an hundred and ninety homilies. He speaks in his preface of the taking of Jerusalem by Chosroes, king of Persia, and of the cruelties inflicted on the monks of Palestine. To this is added a poem, in which he deplores the loss of the real cross which the Persians carried away among the rest of their booty, and celebrated the restitution of it in another poem written in Italian. The former, in Greek and Latin, is inserted in the supplement to the Bibl. Patritm. 3
