Sy'meon PIUS

24. PIUS, VENERABILIS or STUDITA. Symeon, denominated by his admirers εὐλαβής, " the Pious," or, as Combéfis renders it, " the Venerable," was a monk of the monastery of Studium at Constantinople, in the latter half of the tenth century. His younger namesake, Symeon of St. Mamas [No. 16], was his disciple, and held him in such reverence as to pay to his memory honours which were deemed unauthorized and excessive, and involved the younger Symeon in difficulties with his ecclesiastical superiors.


Λόγος ἀσκητικὸς τολυμερὴς ἠθικὸς κεφαλαιώδης,

Symeon the Pious is regarded as the author of a short treatise on the duties of an ascetic life, Λόγος ἀσκητικὸς τολυμερὴς ἠθικὸς κεφαλαιώδης, Oratio de vitae asceticae officiis summatim scripta,.


A version in modern or Romaic Greek, by Dionysius Zagoraeus, is published with his version of the works of Symeon of St. Mamas. 4to. Venice, 1790.
