The author, well-known as an outstanding Byzantine canonist, was Archbishop of Ohrid (approx. 1216-1236) and practically assumed the position of a Patriarch. The Corpus of the Ponemata diaphora (personal and official letters, expert testimonies and verdicts and proceedings of the Ohrid Synodal Court) is his major work. It provides complex source material of major importance in two ways: historically because of the detailed information on the political and ecclesiastical history of South-Eastern Europe at the time of radical change around 1204; legally because texts (let alone corpora) dealing with the practice of ecclesiastical jurisdiction in Byzantium are few and far between.
This new edition replaces the older, non-critical, edition of Cardinal Pitras (1891).
