The invocation of the Archangels Michael and Gabriel attributed to Metrophanes metropolitan of Smyrna (BHG 1292)
Journal Contribution - Journal Article
This article presents a critical edition and annotated English transla- tion of the Invocation of the holy Archangels Michael and Gabriel by Metro- phanes, who was bishop of Smyrna in the second half of the 9th century. The text has only been preserved in the 12th-century manuscript Oxoniensis, Bodleia- nus, Auctarium E.5.12 (Miscellaneus 77). This new reconstruction of the Greek text replaces the unreliable edition of 1887 by Basileios Georgiadès. In the notes ac- companying the translation, references to expressions and Biblical quotes recur- rent in the oeuvre of Metrophanes have been added.
