«Послание к авве Симеону» в сборнике ΑΣΚΗΤΙΚΟΙ ΛΟΓΟΙ Исаака Сирина: история одного псевдоэпиграфа
The author presents a study of The Letter to Abbas Simeon, a well-known pseudepigraph included in the collection of ascetical works of Isaac the Syrian (7th century). The work proves to be The Letter to Patrikios by the West Syrian writer Philoxenos of Mabbog. Manuscript tradition of the interpolation and probable reasons for the false attribution are discussed. The latter were probably connected with the controversy over «Messalianism».
