Mucia'nus or Mucia'nus Schola'sticus

or MUTIA'NUS, surnamed SCHOLA'STICUS, lived in the middle of the sixth century of our aera.


Translations of the Homilies of St. Chrysostom

He translated into Latin, at the request of Cassiodorus, the thirty-four homilies of St. Chrysostom on the Epistle to the Hebrews. He had also previously made a Latin translation of the treatise of Gaudentius on Music [GAUDENTIUS], as we learn from Cassiodorus, who calls Mucianus " vir disertissimus." (Cassiod. Divin. Lect. 8.) The translation of the above-mentioned homilies of Chrysostom is still extant, and has been highly praised by Savil and the other editors of and commentators on Chrysostom.


It was first printed at Cologne, 1530, 8vo., and subsequently appeared in the Latin editions of the works of this father, in which Mucianus is erroneously called Mutius. In the Greek editions of the Homilies the translation of Hervetus is usually given; but Montfaucon has also printed in the twelfth volume of his edition the version of Mucianus.
