Isidore of Pelusium (late 4th/5th cent.)
Greek author of 2000 short letters. His learning and exegesis was praised by Severus who quotes from several Letters (Contra Grammaticum, III.39). The Syriac translation of a collection of 126 letters is preserved; this is of interest for the textual history of the Greek text (see especially Letter 1278, ed. Évieux).
- CPG 5557–5558.
- P. Évieux, Isidore de Péluse, Lettres, vol. I (SC 422, 1997), 153–5, 171–2. (on the Syriac translation)
