Carpathius, Joannes

Carpathius, Joannes (Ioannes Karpathios), a bishop of the island of Carpathos, of uncertain date. At the request of the monks of India he wrote to them a consolatory work in 100 chapters, entitled pros tous apo Indias protrepsantas monachous parakletikon (Phot. Cod 201). This work is still extant, and a Latin translation of it by J. Pontanus is printed at the end of his "Dioptrae Philippi Solitarii", Ingolstadt, 1654, and in the "Bibliotheca Patrum" xii. The Greek original, as well as some other ascetic works of his, are still extant in MS.
