Abstract. The part of «Amphilochia» published here is a collection of mostly short works, which treat the topics, both exegetical and theological, previously developed by the patriarch in more expanded form. In some cases St Photios strives to provide a most concise summary of the already investigated problem, but sometimes he expounds his views more precisely or even revises certain points. The section includes also educational materials (for instance, treatise No 225) and pieces of historical information, such as treatise No 242.
Keywords: Biblical exegesis, Byzantine theology, Byzantine philology, Photios of Constantinople.
