Anastasius the Sinaite

ANASTASIANA. Grouped under this title are many works unduly attributed to Anastasius the Sinaite. 1 In Hexaemeron libri XII, a commentary on the work of the six days Gen 1, partially published in a Latin version PG 89, 851-1071. J.D. Baggarly, who prepared the edition of the Greek text, considers this work to postdate the 10th c. CPG 7770. 2 Contra Monophysitas PG 89, 1180-1190 appears as a series of citations of heresiarchs Arius, Aetius, Eunomius and 4th- and early 5th-c. fathers Eustathius of Antioch, Apollinaris, Basil of Caesarea, Ambrose, Athanasius, Antipater of Bostra, Ephrem of Antioch, Proclus, Amphilochius and Olympiodorus, none of which is otherwise preserved. This compilation is also considered a fraud of undetermined date CPG 7771. 3 Disputatio adversus Iudaeos, a dialogue between a Christian and a Jew PG 89, 1204-1281 which cannot have been written before the 9th c. CPG 7772. 4 Sermo de tribus quadragesimis PG 89, 1389-1397, datable to the 12th c. CPG 7773. 5 De haeresibus et concisa et perspicua fidei nostrae notitia, works attributed to a Sinaite monk Anastasius, a theologian of an unknown period CPG 7774-7775. 6 De liturgiis in quadragesimo die pro defunctis, Doctrina de temporibus, Capita poenitentialia et Precatio, works attributable to a certain Anastasius the Sinaite, a 9th- to 11th-c. canonist CPG, 7776-7779. 7 Homilia in ramos palmarum, an unpublished homily attributable to a certain priest Anastasius, an allegorist CPG 7780. 8 Doctrina Patrum de Incarnatione Verbi, a very important Greek theological florilegium, literally titled: Speeches Logoi of the holy fathers or selection of quotations by which we wisely learn all of the doctrine of the apostolic church and also the kerygma of theology and the discourses of the divine economy and the exactness of the other right dogmas of the church. In the first part ch. 1-32 the texts are ordered systematically trinitarian theology, esp. christological and constitute a patristic arsenal against monophysitism and monothelitism. Interspersed with citations borrowed from the heterodox, the Greek fathers from Ignatius of Antioch to Maximus the Confessor most frequently named are the Cappadocians and Cyril of Alexandria. Ambrose and Leo the Great are mentioned among the Latin fathers. Some authors, e.g., Eubulus of Lystra, and some texts are known only through this collection. The second part ch. 32-45 forms a kind of supplement, with no systematic order that responds with citations fathers, heretics and various passages to many questions about the Christian faith and errors. The whole is datable to the late 7th or early 8th c. Its author is disputed. Fr. Diekamp, Doctrina Patrum de Incarnatione Verbi.
