Theodore Meliteniotes was one of the most prominent figures in letters and sciences in the Late Byzantine period (second half of the 14th century). He had his part in the political and ecclesiastical developments of his time, on the side of the supporters of Gregorios Palamas. He held senior ecclesiastical offices, such as megas sakellarios and didaskalos ton didaskalon, and wrote various works. His writings delved into theological, mathematical and astronomical matters. His Three Books on Astronomy (also known as the Astronomical Tribiblos) as well as a long commentary on the four Gospels are of particular importance.
Patriarchal official, scholar and writer, didaskalos ton didaskalon and megas sakellarios.
