Epiphanius of Jerusalem
Epiphanius Of Jerusalem a Greek hagiographer, lived probably in the 12th century. Allatius (De Symeonum Scriptis, page 106) and Fabricius (Codex Apogryph. n. 2) have given an extract from the Life of the Virgin by this author; the entire work has been published since in the Anecdota Literaria of Amodutius. Epiphanius is also the author of a History of St. Andrew, the apostle (Allatius, De Symeonum Scriptis, page 90), and of a Description of Jerusalenm (published by Ferdinand Morelli in his Expositio Thematum, Paris, 1620, and by Allatius, Σύμμιχτα). A MS. in the Bodleian Library contains a treatise entitled Epiphanii Monachi et Presbyteri, Character B. Virginis et Domini Nostri, which differs from the Life of the Virgin cited above, but seems to be by the same author. The same is also true of the MS. entitled De Dissidio quatuor Evangelistarum, Circa Resurrectionem Christi, which is found in the same library. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
