Bishop of Olympus or of Patara in Lycia, and later of Tyre. He assembled volumes of splendid and well-composed discourse against Porphyry;[1] also a Symposium of twelve virgins, and an excellent discourse On the Resurrection against Origen,[2] and another against the same On the Pythonissa, and On Freewill. He also wrote commentaries on Genesis and on the Song of Songs, and many other things which are frequently read. Around the end of the persecution under Decius and Valerian[3] he was crowned with martyrdom at Chalcis in the east.[4]
Greek Original:
Μεθόδιος, Ὀλύμπου Λυκίας ἤτοι Πατάρων, καὶ μετὰ ταῦτα Τύρου ἐπίσκοπος, λαμπροῦ καὶ συγκειμένου λόγου κατὰ Πορφυρίου συνέταξε τεύχη: καὶ Συμπόσιον δέκα παρθένων, καὶ περὶ Ἀναστάσεως λόγον ἄριστον κατὰ Ὠριγένους, καὶ ἕτερον κατὰ τοῦ αὐτοῦ περὶ Πυθονίσσης, καὶ περὶ αὐτεξουσίου. ἔγραψε δὲ καὶ εἰς τὴν Γένεσιν καὶ εἰς τὰ ᾌσματα τῶν ᾀσμάτων ὑπομνήματα: καὶ ἕτερα πολλὰ χύδην ἀναγινωσκόμενα. ὃς περὶ τὰ τελευταῖα τοῦ διωγμοῦ ἐπὶ Δεκίου καὶ Βαλεριανοῦ ἐν Χαλκίδι τῆς ἀνατολῆς μαρτυρίῳ ἐστέφθη.
