Simeon, Archbishop of Thessalonica

Simeon, Archbishop Of Thessalonica in the 14th and 15th centuries, and author of a number of works which are still extant, was a pronounced advocate of monasticism, a patriot, and a determined opponent of the Latin Church, against which he directed his most notable work, Κατὰ Αιρέσεων, etc. (Jassy, 1683, and abridged in R. Simon's Critique de la Biblioth. de M. Du-Pin, p. 403 sq.), and his De Divino Templo, etc. (see Leon Allatii De Sim. Scriptis Diatriba [Par. 1664], p. 185-192). Extracts are given in Jac. Goar, Euchologium Groecorum (Par. 1647), and by Morinus, Gessner, and Possevin (De Simeon. Scriptis, p. 193; comp. Bibl. Max. Patrum, 22, 768 sq.). A number of additional writings from his pen are mentioned in Allatius, among them several hymns. He conducted a valiant defense of Thessalonica against the Turks, and died in A.D. 1430, about six months before the surrender of the city to Amurath II. See Allatii De Eccles. Occident. atque Orient. Perpetua Consensione Libri Tres (Col. Agripp. 1648), lib. 2, c. 18; No. 13; p. 862 sq.; Gass, Mystik, d. Nikolaus Cabasilas vom Leben in Christo (Greifswald, 1849), p. 157 sq
