Andrew of Caesarea

Andrew of Caesarea

Bishop of that see in Cappadocia, assigned by Krumbacher to the first half of the sixth century, though he is yet variously placed by others from the fifth to the ninth century. His principal work is a commentary on the Apocalypse (P.G. CVI, 215-458, 1387-94), important as the first commentary on the book that has come down to us, also as the source from which most of its later commentators have drawn. The writer differs from most of the Byzantine commentators by reason of his extensive acquaintance with early patristic literature.

APOLLINAIRE in VIG., Dict. De la bible (Paris, 1895); KRUMBACHER, Gesch. der byzant. Lit. (2d. ed. Munich, 1897), 129-131.
