Chrysippus of Cappadocia
Chrysippus Of Cappadocia an ecclesiastical writer, lived in the 5th century, according to Cyril of Scythopolis (Vit. St. Euthym.). He and two of his brothers, Cosmo's and Gabriel, received a good education in Syria, and were then given into the care of Euthymius at Jerusalem. In that place, also, Chrysippus took orders. In 455 he became steward of the monastery, and subsequently praefect of the Church of the, Resurrection, and "guardian of the holy Cross," filling the latter place for ten years, till his death. He wrote, in a style both elegant and concise, some works on ecclesiastical subjects; but they are lost, except a treatise, entitled Homilia de Sancta Deipara (also found with a Latin translation in the second volume of the Auctariumn Patr. Paris, 1624), and some fragments of a small work, entitled Encomium Theodori Martyris (in Eustathius of Constalitinople's Liber de Statu Vitae Functorum). A Laudatio Joannis Baptistae, attributed to Chrysippus, is printed in Latin by Combefis (Biblioth. Concionat. 7:108). See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v. SEE COSMOS.
