Bishop of Cappadocia

Click to enlarge

Andrew of Caesarea, Bishop of that see in Cappadocia, assigned by Krumbacher to the first half of the sixth century, though he is yet variously placed by others from the fifth to the ninth century. His principal work is a commentary on the Apocalypse (P.G., CVI, 215-458, 1387-94), important as the first commentary on the book that has come down to us, also as the source from which most of its later commentators have drawn. This writer differs from most of the Byzantine commentators by reason of his extensive acquaintance with early patristic literature.
