Abstract :
The paper presents the first ever edition of the first half (chapters 1-28) of the long Life of St John Chrysostom by Nicetas David the Paphlagonian, composed in all probability in the second quarter of the tenth century. This is an important text for a number of reasons, as explained in detail in my introduction to the Life published in Byz, 86 (2016), pp. 1-51. The critical edition is preceded by a study of the unique manuscript and an exposition of the peculiarities of the author’s language as well as of the editorial principles.
