Cosmas the Hymnographer

21 bytes added, 19:24, March 21, 2011
The hymns of Cosmas were originally intended to add to the interest of the services at Jerusalem, but through the influence of Constantinople their use became universal in the Greek Orthodox Church. It is not certain, however, that all the hymns ascribed to Cosmas in the Greek liturgical books were really his compositions, especially as his teacher of the same name was also a hymn writer.
Collections of hymns, varying in number, are attributed to Cosmas, and may be found in [[W:Jacques Paul Migne|Migne]], Christ-Paranikas, ''Anthologia graeca carminum christianorum''.
