Other Works Besides 'the Letters of Clement of Alexandria' Cited by John of Damascus in His Sacred Parallels While At Mar Saba (And Which Are Now Lost)

  • Eulogius of Alexandria's Commentary on Psalm 2
  • Eustathius of Antioch's On the Soul
  • Justin Martyr's On the Resurrection 
More to follow, just going through the work now.  But there certainly were a number of manuscripts in the Mar Saba library (or found in some other nearby library in the Jerusalem Patriarchate) which have now been lost to us.  If Morton Smith had found one of them, we wouldn't even be having this discussion ...
