Headword: Ἐπιφάνιος
Adler number: epsilon,2743
Translated headword: Epiphanios, Epiphanius
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Bishop of Olybria.[1] He wrote a polemical and very edifying treatise against those who burn icons.
Greek Original:
Ἐπιφάνιος, ἐπίσκοπος Ὀλυβρίας. ἔγραψε λόγον ἀντιρρητικὸν κατὰ εἰκονοκαυτῶν, λίαν ὠφέλιμον.
Note:
[1] So the transmitted text, but no such place is otherwise attested, and it was perverse of Adler not to favour the manuscripts which give -- as most of them do -- Sely(m)bria (sigma 307).
Keywords: art history; biography; Christianity; ethics; geography; religion
