Author(s): REININK, G.J.
Journal: Le Muséon
Volume: 110 Issue: 1-2 Date: 1997
Until the publication, in 1968, of H. Scheinhardt's article Zitate aus drei verlorenen Schriften des Theodor von Mopsuestia Theodore's work Contra magos, dedicated to the Armenian bishop Mastubius, was only known by title and by Photius' summary of its contents. In this article Scheinhardt published, in German translation, a fragment of the Contra magos discovered by W. Strothmann in the manuscript Vat. syr. 496, and contained in Dadisho' Qatraya's Commentary on the writings of Abba Isaiah. The critical edition of Dadisho''s Commentary by R. Draguet in 1972 made the Syriac text of the fragment together with its French translation accessible to the scholarly world.
