Brock (1979:6-7) described John of Ephesus (c.507-c.508) and his works as follows:
John of Amid, appointed bishop of Ephesus and Asia in 542, wrote towards the end of his life two works of the greatest importance for sixth century history, the Lives of the Eastern Saints (written 566-8; published by Brooks with an English translation in PO 17-19), and an Ecclesiastical History in three parts. As an independent work only Part III (written over the decade 575-585) survives, virtually complete. The original work consisted of: There are two old monographs in John's Ecclesiastical History, by J.P.N. Land (1856, in Dutch), and by Diakonov (1908, in Russian)
