ABSTRACT

Notitae episcopatuum of the Church of Constantinople are some of the most difficult historical documents to interpret. This is due to the fact that none of these old lists of the sees under the Patriarchate of Constantinople is a clean document. In fact, data relating to different historical periods are mixed together in the preserved Notitiae. This is why scholarly consensus in dating the information exposed in these documents does not exist.
In this paper, the author offers a new interpretation key for the paragraphs on the Roman provinces of Moesia Secunda and Scythia in Notitiae 1-6 (in Darrouzès’ edition). He has as a start point the latest knowledge on the evolution of the Church organization in these two Danubian provinces during the 5th-7th centuries A.D. It is on the basis of these data that he infers when the original (lost) Notitiae had been elaborated, how the paragraphs concerning Moesia Secunda and Scythia had looked like in the original draft and how these paragraphs were subsequently used as sources in elaborating the later (preserved) Notitiae.

Keywords: Notitiae episcopatuum, Moesia Secunda, Scythia
