John Of Antioch (3),

surnamed Scholasticus, an eminent Greek legist, flourished in the 6th century. He entered the Church, and became patriarch of Constantinople (564-578). He compiled a collection of ecclesiastical laws, which greatly surpassed in extent and method those which preceded it, and which has remained the basis of canon law in the Greek Church. Another of his works, entitled Nomocanon, was an attempt to harmonize Justinian's constitutions relating to the Church with the older rules. Both works were for many centuries held in high estimation, and were inserted in Voell and Justel's Bibl. juris canonici veteris (Paris, 1961), 2, 603-789. See Fabricius, Bibl. Groeca. 11, 100; Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Genesis 26:530. (J.N.P.)
