Sample text

Borgehammar has observed that two unusual words are to be found in Alexander’s text: a) glvssÒkomon (the silver casket in which Helena has the cross encased); and b) salibãrion (the bridle fashioned from the nails of the cross). 36 Like Sozomen, Alexander rejected the Judas Cyriacus tradition. It is not difficult to understand why: one of his objectives is to give full and sole credit for the discovery of the cross to Constantine and his mother. We see this in the way Alexander has crafted his narration.

This Elias does not appear to be running away from some Jezabel and he dines more bountifully than the widow with her oil and barley meal. In fact, he does not seem to be imitating the prophet at all. Moreover, his understanding and practice of the monastic virtues, especially chastity, greatly amuse Psellos and, presumably, those to whom he addressed these letters. It has been pointed out that the prime characteristic of Elias is earthiness and 4 Gautier (1980-82). Psellos also wrote to a protonotary named Elias, but there is no connection with our Elias: Karpozilos (1980).
