Theophanes, styled CERAMIEUS, archbishop of Tauromemium, between Syracuse and Messina, in the firmer half of the 11th century (? see his own Homily 26, and Leo Allatius; but comp. Scorsus, ut infra). He also bore, it would seem, the name of Gregory, which occurs in several MSS. He wrote Homilies, sixty-two of which were publisher in 1644 by the Jesuit Scorsus at Paris, with notes and two proems setting forth the life, teachings, and literary qualities of Theophanes, etc. The Homilies are written in Greek, and the style is flowing and easy, but vitiated by an excessive tendency to allegorize. Image-worship and invocation of the Virgin are taught everywhere. Consult Cave, Hist. Lit. 2, 132, and see Herzog, Real- Encyklop. s.v.
