Abstract

The purpose of this article is to identify the anonymous commentator with whom Cyril of Alexandria is in disagreement at the beginning of his Commentary on Hosea, because of the commentator’s purely allegorical interpretation of the marriage of Hosea with a prostitute (Os 1:2-3). We present initially the position of the author “not deprived of reputation” as transmitted by Cyril, then we re-examine F.M.Abel’s assumption in support of Didymus the Blind. Finally, we propose Pierius, a priest and leader of the Christian school of Alexandria, and his homily On the Beginning of the Prophet Hosea, as possible candidates behind Cyril’s attack.
