29. STUDITA. In the notice of the Adversaria Gerardi Langbaini
contained in the Catalogus MStorum Angliae et Hiberniae,
vol. i. p. 269. the eighth volume of Langbaine's collection is said to contain a notice, De Philippi Studitae Historia Graeca.
Of the historian or his work there is, we believe, no notice in any extant writer; and as the preceding article in Langbaine's book is described as Scholae Alexandrinae Paedagogorum Successio
, and is probably the fragment of the work of Philip of Side, already noticed [No. 26], we suspect that "Studitae" is an error for "Sidetae," and that the Historia Graeca
is no other than his Historia Christiana,
which is termed Graeca
, not because it treats of Grecian affairs, but is written in the Greek language.
