Apponius who probably lived about the middle of the 7th century, is the, author of. a commentary on the Song of Songs, which the Venerable Bede cites (Cant. Cant. 4:5, ed. Migne, PP. Lat. xci, 1162). His exposition may be called the mystico-prophetic. He takes the Song of Solomon to be a continuous picture of the history of revelation from the creation to the final judgment.
In 8:1-13, Apponius finds an indication of the ultimate conversion of the Jews after much suffering. The Expositio was first printed at Freiburg in 1538, then again at Lyons in 1677, in vol. xiv ,of the Bibliotheca Putrum.
