Title: The Unedited Life of St John Chrysostom by Nicetas David the Paphlagonian
Subtitle: Editio princeps, Part I
Author(s): ANTONOPOULOU, Theodora
Volume: 87 Date: 2017
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.
