27. St. Methodius
The Symposium: Treatise on Chasity

translated and annotated by Herbert Musurillo, SJ

(More from this Author)

The Symposium, or Banquet, is a dialogue in imitation of Plato, written by Methodius, a teacher and probably a bishop, who flourished in Lycia during the period known as the "little peace of the church." It is perhaps the most beautiful symbolic prose-poem of the early patristic period.
