Mucianus, or Mutianus
Mucianus, or Mutianus surnamed SCHOLASTICUS, an early ecclesiastic of some note, flourished near the middle of the 6th century A.D. He is celebrated as the translator of the 34 homilies of St. Chrysostom on the Epistle to the Hebrews, a task performed at the request of Cassiodorus, by whom he is called "vir disertissimus." This translation is still in existence; it was published for the first time at Cologne in 1530 (8vo), and has been inserted in the Latin editions of the works of St. Chrysostom, though in the Graeco-Latin editions the translation by Hervet is generally preferred. He had previously furnished also a Latin translation of Gaudentius's Treatise on Music. See Fabricius, Biblioth. Graeca, 8:558, 559; Cassiodorus, Divin. Lect. 8.
