      Evagrius of Pontus (a.k.a. Evagrius Ponticus) -- not to be confused with other Evagriuses -- was an important character in the late 300's. This contemporary of Jerome was a colleague of Basil of Caesarea, and Gregory Nazianzus. Evagrius was somewhat mobile, traveling to Jerusalem and Egypt. It would be interesting to analyze his writings to discover if he used different Gospels-text in different locations, or consistently used only one.

      Evagrius' extant works have been somewhat disguised; they were condemned in 553 but his fans circumvented the ban by taking the step of attributing his writings to non-condemned authors. By working through documents in various languages the Evagrian materials can be accurately identified.

      Some online resources provide addition information about Evagrius Ponticus and his works (including English translations!) --
