Author of St. Mary of Egypt's Hagiography

Under "Performance," the current article states that St. Andrew of Crete was also the author of St. Mary of Egypt's Hagiography. I had always thought the author was St. Sophronius, as the text of her Life includes phrases such as, "And I (says St. Sophronius), in writing the life of St. Mary of Egpyt...". I didn't want to go ahead and edit myself, since I'm not certain. --Coderforchrist 14:40, April 2, 2009 (UTC)

Right, St. Andrew wrote the Troparia for St. Mary, but that's not hagiography. Hagiography is, from my understanding, the written life of a saint, which, in this case, was written by St. Sophronius—at least, from every indication I've seen. I am glad to be proven wrong, however. --Coderforchrist 16:27, April 7, 2009 (UTC)
