4. A monk of the monastery of COCCINOBAPHUS, about the time of the emperor Alexius Comnenus (A. D. 1081-1118).
He was a man of great learning and an elegant writer. Several of his homilies are extant in MS., and one of them, In Nativitatem B. Mariae,
is given both in the original Greek and in a Latin version, in the Auctarium Novum
of Combéfis, vol. i. p. 1583. Allatius ascribes this homily, but with hesitation, to another Jacobus, archbishop of Bulgaria, who lived about the middle of the 13th century. (Fabric. Bibl. Graec.
vol. x. pp. 277, 278, 279, 282, 318, vol. xi. p. 637; Cave, Hist. Litt.
