DRAFT John Maxentius, one of the Scythian Monks, presents a "libellus fidei" (the book of faith) to the papal delegates in Constantinople, Bishops Germanus and John, the deacons Felix and Dioscorus, and the presbyter Blandus. The libellus defends the so-called Theopaschite formula that was rejected by the see of Rome. Written in Constantinople, 519.
Dominis viris beatissimis germano et ioanni episcopis, felici et dioscoro  diaconis, blando presbytero et vniversae legationi apostolicae sedis, libellvs ab exigvo maxentio, et omnivm qvi mecvm svnt.
Here follows the apology for the Neo-Chalcedonian theology supported by the so-called Scythian Monks that maintains that the formula "One of the Trinity suffered in the flesh" is indispensable to maintain the Chalcedonian Christology against heretics.
(ed. F. Glorie 1978: 5)
