Moschampar, Georgius

Moschampar, Georgius (Γεωργιός ὁ Μοσχάμπαρ), a noted Eastern ecclesiastic, flourished towards the close of the 13th century. He was a friend and contemporary of George of Cyprus, patriarch of Constantinople. Moschampar took a leading part in opposition to the doctrine of the Latin Church on the procession of the Holy Spirit, and to the distinguished advocate of that Church, Joannes Beccus or Veccus. He seems, however, to have had little weight with his own party. He published several treatises in opposition to Veccus, to which the latter ably replied; but neither the attacks of the one nor the answers of the other seem to be preserved. There is a letter of Moschampar to his friend George of Cyprus, printed in the life of the latter, which was published by J. F. Bernard de Rubeis (Venice, 1753). See Pachymerius, Hist. 1L8; Allatius, Graec. Orthodox. 2:3, 9, 10; Fabricius, Bibl. Graec. 3:46, 47, comp. 8:53, 54; Smith, Dict. of Greek and Roman Biog. and Mythol. s.v.
