Nicetas, Serron

Nicetas, Serron an Eastern ecclesiastic, flourished as a contemporary of Theophylact in the 1lth century. He was first deacon of the Church of Constantinople, and afterwards bishop of Heraclea. He composed several funeral orations upon the death of Gregory Nazianzen; also a commentary, which is inserted in Latin among the works of that father. There is besides ascribed to him a catena upon the Book of Job, compiled of passages from several of the fathers, as Apollinarius, Athanasius, Basil, Ephrem Syrus, Eusebius, Gregory Nazianzen, Gregory of Nyssa, Isidore, Julius Halicarnassensis, Methodius, Nylus, Olympidorus, Origen, Polychronius Severus, Theophilus of Alexandria, Chrysostom, Cyril of Alexandria, and Didymus of Alexandria. This work was printed at London in 1637 in folio. We have also by the same author several catenae upon the Psalms and Canticles, printed at Basl. in 1552. There is likewise a commentary upon the poems of Gregory Nazianzen, printed at Venice under the name of Nicetas of Paphlagonia, which is apparently by the same author. See Cave, Hist. Lit. ad ann. 1077; Fabricius, Bibl. Graeca, 8:431.
