Abstract :
Presents the Dialogue of Moschos, a record of an actual or fictitious discussion written as early as the second third of the 5th c. The study is divided into four parts: a brief introduction followed by the editio princeps of the text, an English translation with notes and commentary, and a concluding discussion. Suggests that, no matter how unoriginal the text's argumentation is, the author must have been the first, or at least one of the first, 'pre-iconophile' believers to put these arguments together in order to fomulate a somewhat coherent (though unsophisticated) defense of the veneration of created things. ;
