Abstract :
This article provides a thorough introduction and the editio princeps of a commentary on the Song of Songs so far unknown to the scholars. Four remaining sections of this new text lay hidden in the Escurialensis R.I.3, a secondary witness of the so-called Catena Trium Patrum (B1), copied and interpolated by the famous copyist Andreas Darmarios. The first part of the introductory study attempts a chronological and literary placement of the text. Its language and exegetical style clearly remind of Neophitus Reclusus and therefore should not be dated back earlier than the 12th century. The second part deals with the suspicious figure of Darmarios and clarifies his purposes and strategies in the interpolation of the Escurialensis R.I.3. Furthermore, a new and more precise dating for the manuscript is provided, with an attempt to identify its antigraph.
