APONIUS 6th c.. Passed down under this name, thought to be Roman, is an Expositio in Canticum Canticorum. The author’s exact biographical data are unknown. There are allusions in the texts to military invasions. The author shows an interest in monastic life. Allusions to Chalcedonian faith indicate the work cannot have been composed before 450; comparison of his interpretation of Song with 6th-c. exegesis recommends a dating after 500. Inspired by previous models Origen, ps.-Hippolytus and based on a fair level of theological and philosophical education, Aponius’s commentary merits study, both from the perspective of the history of exegesis concept of salvation history; spiritual vision of union between Christ and the soul and regarding its Christology, according to which Jesus’ soul, definitively united to the Word at the moment of crucifixion, found an eminent place see esp. Lib. IX, with Song 6:8-11. It also contains a pneumatology Holy Spirit of some interest. The work’s influence cannot have been great, however.
